Two-time Juno nominated, genre bending, global roots band Jaffa Road have established themselves as unique creators and interpreters of Jewish music from around the world. For this special Ashkenaz concert, they will be joined by some of the most potent and playful female voices on the Jewish music scene today, including their own lead vocalist, Aviva Chernick. This will be a celebration of the female voice heard within a multilingual context of Portuguese, Ladino, Hebrew, Russian and English. Together, the quintet and their special female guest vocalists exchange musical interpretations challenging the music to higher heights, offering the audience a cornupcopia of colour and texture, emotion and wit.
