Nomadica re-imagines and recombines the rich, soulful, and righteously celebratory music of Arabs, Roma, and Jews. Led by Juno-award winning trumpeter and WJMF Master Artist David Buchbinder and vocalist, multiinstrumentalist, and dancer, Roula Said, the band is made up of some of Toronto’s finest and most versatile musicians.
Buchbinder’s original compositions and creative arrangements join forces with Said’s powerful and lyrical vocals, supported by a frontline of masterful improvisors and a funky rhythm section.

“Mix Said’s voice with Buchbinder’s fluent jazz lines and a dynamic, versatile band and amazing things happen…This is urgent, inventive, passionate music.”
