Jafia Short Info

Jafa is one of the most incredible bands on the Polish music scene. The icon of Polish reggae yet again expires the roots of its music by creative collage of music. The group is inspired by the 60-70s soul, funk, r'n'b, jamaican reggae and new sounds. The band perfectly performs on stage – with strength and energy. The voice and charisma of the leader, Dawid Portasz, instantly grabs attention. He is one of the most expressive polish vocals since Czeslaw Niemen. Portasz also co-created the Rastasize project, a collaboration between the best Jamaican musicians: Sly & Robbie, Dean Freaser and many more. The most recent Jafia’s album 'Ka ra va na” was nominated for the best album award for the Music of the Roots.
