Saffron Caravan (The Kennedy Center)

Saffron Caravan

Saffron Caravan, the entire nine-member Genesis World Music Ensemble, unites  stellar musicians from Iran, Afghanistan, Cuba, Morocco and the U.S. to serve as a model of cross-cultural collaboration for other disciplines to emulate. Their repertoire, spanning seven languages and multiple keys, explores both the sacred and mystical traditions in Arab, Jewish and Persian music.  Infused with sub-Saharan roots of blues and jazz, spiced with Afro-Caribbean and South-American rhythms, their evocative melodies transport our international audiences.
