Portland’s own Seffarine offers an “ear-caressing blend of sounds from Spain and north Africa, spiced with a bit of fiery instrumentation and percussion.” Combining the soulful sounds of Moroccan singer Lamiae Naki with flamenco guitarist Nat Hulskamp, their music melds into an intoxicating blend of ancient and modern that Bass Player Magazine describes as a “gorgeous intersection of Spanish flamenco, Arabic and Andalusian music, Persian classical, and jazz.” Visit Seffarine’s website to hear their music and learn more about their story: https://www.seffarine.com/
