Concert: Jaafar Music
I love Jaafar Music, led by my friend Troy Cole. The group describes itself on its website as:
"a middle eastern jazz Arabic funk fusion ensemble that originates from the Raleigh/Durham Triangle of NC. The instrumentation is usually bass, oud, keys, dumbek, drum set, sometime a double neck guitar is thrown into the mix. It is an awesome blend of western and eastern ideas fusing seamlessly through 'traditional' oriental themes, and western jazz/funk."As always, I enjoyed seeing them perform tonight. As soon as I got home, I created a public gallery for the images and uploaded them, as well as .mpg videos.
