"Jon Madof's Rashanim is a fun and upbeat klezmer band playing originals and
re-worked klezmer standards with strong Middle Eastern and avant-jazz
touches"-The Village Voice

Self-described as a Jewish power trio, Rashanim (Jon Madof on guitar, Shanir
Bluemnkranz, bass and Mathias Kunzli drums and percussion) incorporate such
disparate musical influences as avant-garde jazz, indie rock, Turkish
classical music, and Jewish sacred melodies. The mˇlange of textures has
earned the trio acclaim and the group's self-titled debut was recently
released on John Zorn's Tzadik records.
