Jaffna is an acoustic, ethnic fusion ensemble that plays original music. This Philadelphia-based world music ensemble combines instrumentation and influences from the Middle East, India, and anywhere else that inspires them. With roots in the early 1990s, the group maintains its distinct style with original compositions and improvisations that stretch the boundaries of their respective cultures. Jaffna has produced 2 CDs of original music and its members maintain a high level of activity in many world music projects such as Barakka, One, Hindugrass, Arehm and Atzilut.

Jaffna musicians have created a musical universe with oud, guitar, tabla, and dumbek, where they can all argue, eat and stay good friends.  Along with the strong Mid-East and Indian flavor come unmistakable flamenco, rock, Balkan, and jazz influences, the result of jamming in and around the vibrant Philadelphia world music scene for years.
