Stroum Jewish Community Center and Town Hall Seattle are thrilled to present Jaffa Road. This highly acclaimed Toronto-based world music group is made up of some of Canada’s most exciting and innovative interpreters of intercultural music. The two-time Juno-nominated, genre-bending, global roots band has established themselves as unique creators and interpreters of Jewish music in Ladino, Portuguese, Hebrew, Arabic, Russian, and English. The group has created a unique sonic landscape drawing on Sephardic Jewish, Arabic, Indian, modern jazz, rock, and dub grooves. Together, the quintet and lead vocalist Aviva Chernick reach higher heights, offering audiences a cornucopia of colorful poetry, emotions, textures, and danceable grooves. Sit in for a spellbinding concert with Jaffa Road, whose music creates a union between ancient and modern, acoustic and electronic, sacred and secular.
