World Jazz Ensemble

This group of musicains out of Los Angeles are very versatile. The sound they produce is an explosive fusion of jazz with authentic Middle Eastern, Balkan, West African, Celtic, Caribbean, South American, funk/R&B and classical influences.

This melding of styles can be seen in their use of such exotic instruments as the oud (fretless lute), bouzouki (fretted lute), duduk (double reed, wind instrument), kawala (reed flute), cavaqhino (similar to ukulele), Uilleann pipes (Scottish bagpipe) and a multitude of percussion instruments along with standard Western instruments
