Zion 80

Born In : New York City, NY

Zion80 explores Jewish music through the lens of the Afrobeat funk master Fela Anikulapo Kuti. Led by Jon Madof of Rashanim, the 10-piece band arranges beautiful melodies usng the polyrhythmic intensity of Afrobeat, blended with the improvisational madness of the Downtown scene. Madof’s most ambitious project to date, Zion80 is blazing hot and tight as a drum. Spiritual, grooving, and endlessly exciting, this is essential Jewish music for the 21st century.
