Walk-ups Welcome!

Join us for a festive FREE First Friday concert with Philadelphia-based world music ensemble Jaffna! Jaffana combines instrumentation and influences from the Middle East, India, and anywhere else that inspires them. With roots in the early-1990s, the group maintains its distinct style with original compositions and improvisations which stretch the boundaries of their respective cultures. Don’t miss being transported to other worlds!

Jaffna Ensemble: Roger Mgrdichian, Raji Malik, Branavan Ganesan, Joseph Tayoun

Follow Jaffna on Facebook and listen to them on Reverb Nation!

This event is free to the public. The Museum for Art in Wood interprets, nurtures, and champions creative engagement and expansion of art, craft, and design in wood to enhance the public’s understanding and appreciation of it. A suggested donation of $5 per person enables us to provide programs and exhibitions throughout the year.
