Sofia Rei
Sofia Rei is one of the most creative singers working today. A veteran of several Zorn ensembles including Mycale and the Song Project, this intimate reading of Masada compositions is imaginative, driving and heartfelt.

The brainchild of guitarist Jon Madof, Zion80 is a wildly popular project that seamlessly blends the Afro-pop stylings of the legendary Fela Kuti with the Jewish tradition. Featuring an exciting 11-piece all-star band of horns, guitars, keyboards and percussion, they mix the polyrhythmic intensity of Afrobeat with the freewheeling madness of the Downtown scene.
