Mélange is defined as “a mixture” and that is what we are: a fusion of individual musical talents from various cultural and ethnic backgrounds that combines a diverse and rich range of musical  backgrounds and styles inspired from Jazz to Latin, funk, blues, reggae, new music to world beat music. Recognized as one of the finest Jazz ensembles in the Philadelphia region, Mélange is known on the Jazz scene and event circles for crafting and performing fresh artistic interpretation of Jazz standards and for its creative original compositions penned by members of the band.

The ensemble can perform as instrumental – or with a vocalist – as duets, trios, quartets or larger ensembles.
