New concert recording from Zion80!. Recorded Live at The Stone NYC July 30, 2012.

Zion80 explores the music of Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach through the lens of the Afrobeat master Fela Anikulapo Kuti. Led by Jon Madof of Rashanim (John Zorn’s Tzadik Records), the 15-piece band sets the beautiful melodies of Reb Shlomo in arrangements using the polyrhythmic intensity of Afrobeat along with the flavor of the downtown New York City improvised music scene. Stay tuned for a CD on Tzadik Records in 2013!

All songs by Shlomo Carlebach, Arranged by Jon Madof.
