Jambana One World Festival has grown via years of world-class concerts, theatrical productions and festivals. It is produced by Jones & Jones Productions Ltd., founded by Denise Jones and Allan Bucka Jones in 1987. The first was the all-night Reggae On Yah in 1987 in Toronto.
Today, Jambana One World Festival has evolved tremendously as it represents Canada’s growing cultural diversity in its finest form. Feel the rhythms and experience the sights, sounds, tastes and global diversity at Jambana.
