The sheer talent and sophisticated musicality of Jadida tells the story of a world that should be celebrated. Long time collaborators Phil Gunter (on oud), Paul Holleman (saxophones) and Beulah Joseph (vocals) pull together multiple cultural strands. Jadida’s unique, accessible sound is heavily grounded in North African, Middle Eastern and Indian influences.
Combining traditional and modern instruments into a rich blend of irresistible rhythms and melodies, Jadida is pioneering a new platform for global fusion. The live setting is where Jadida shares a joyful celebration of music and dance with audiences, enhanced by dancer extraordinaire Josie Palermo.
