Shanir Ezra Blumenkranz - ABRAXAS plays MASADA

Fri, 11/29/2013 Friday, 8 and 10 pm
The Stone
corner of avenue C and 2nd street

Aram Bajakian (guitar) Eyal Maoz (guitar) Shanir Ezra Blumenkranz (gimbri) Kenny Grohowski (drums)

Shanir Ezra Blumenkranz steps out on his own to make one of the most primal and tribal installments in John Zorn’s “Book of Angels”series. Drawing on his Sephardic roots, Shanir plays gimbri throughout, giving the music a primeval Moroccan edge. Featuring the intense guitar pyrotechnics of Eyal Maoz and Aram Bajakian (who recently has been tearing it up in Lou Reed’s new band) and the atavistic drumming of Kenny Grohowski, this is Ritualistic Jewish Rock for the 21st century by a brilliant young lion from the East Village via Brooklyn/Israel!
