2010 JUNO nominated  (World Music Album of the Year) Jaffa Road is an acclaimed Toronto based world music group made up of some of Canada’s most exciting and innovative interpreters of inter-cultural music. Their music creates a unique sonic landscape that draws organically from the worlds of Jewish music, Classical Arabic and Indian music, modern jazz, electronica, rock, pop, and dub.  Their song, L.Y.G., off their debut album, Sunplace, recently won Grand Prize and a Lennon Award in the prestigious John Lennon Song Writing Contest, and the band was awarded Best World Music Artist at the 2010 Toronto Independent Music Awards.

Jaffa Road’s performance is made possible in part by grants from the Ontario Arts Council’s National and International Touring program, and from Canada Council for the Arts, for which we are most grateful.
