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. Zion80's debut on Tzadik Records will be released in 2013.
