Ancient musical traditions from the Middle East and Balkans are blended with jazz and contemporary improvised music through a Western frame of mind.

Arifa’s secret lies in the creative chemistry between its four members. Coming from Bulgaria, Hungary, Turkey, the Netherlands and Germany their music is just as diverse as their origins, moving from traditional Turkish and Balkan sounds to jazz and contemporary music.

Arifa was founded in 2010 by percussionist Sjahin During. Since then they have performed in 28 countries worldwide and 5 continents at international festivals and venues.

Their CD ’Beyond Babylon’ was released in 2010, ’Anatolian Alchemy’ in 2012, “Voices from the East” in 2014 and their fourth album Secret Poetry” in 2019.

They were consecutively awarded the title “best world music release” in the Netherlands to five star reviews and highly acclaimed internationally.
