Joss Jaffe Brings Dub Kirtan Sounds Down-Under
A little over twelve months ago, Kirtan artist Joss Jaffe hit the scene with a little album that had some big names and and even bigger sound. Now Joss is taking his unique sound on tour to Australia and New Zealand.
Joss Jaffe combined reggae and world to create a blend of acoustic and electric sounds all his own with his new release Dub Mantra Sangha. Take a little Thievery Corporation, mix it with Jai Uttal and then add some Jack Johnson, and you have a feel for what Jaffe is presenting in this new sound, where influences such as U2 can also be heard. The new album features some special guest performances from some of Kirtan’s greats like Dave Stringer, Shimshai, Jai Uttal and Donna DeLory.
Dub Mantra Sangha was released at Yoshi’s Oakland, the premier Jazz and World Music Venue in Northern California. The album spent 5 weeks in the top 40 of CMJ New World one of the largest radio aggregate of non-commercial radio in North America. Since it’s release Joss has toured relentlessly and been invited to perform at ever larger events and festivals.
Along with touring the world, Jaffe also spreads his knowledge through classes and workshops. It is this mix of concert and workshop that Joss Jaffe is bringing down-under as he embarks on his first tour of Australia and New Zealand in January and February of 2017. Playing at large festivals including Rainbow Serpent, Wanderlust Taupo and Luminate in New Zealand he is excited to bring his cross-cultural music to new festival audiences. He will also be offering more intimate concerts and workshops in Melbourne, Sydney, Byron Bay and Auckland. Popular US brand Yogi Approved officially sponsors the tour.
