Not only has he recorded in his home country of England, he has also laid some tracks down in the Netherlands, Sweden, Denmark, France, the US (in Seattle), and Jamaica!
Iafra has also performed internationally, having gigged his way across Sweden (again), Denmark (again), the US (again) - as well as in Germany, Norway, Tunisia, Algeria and Kenya.
Iafra’s latest single is called 'All in a Day'. The crew at CMP Studios filmed Iafra performing his new single live, and the video of this live acoustic version is currently being edited in preparation for its launch online!
