Golem and Zion80

Called “a truly soulful experience” by The New York Times and “a marvelous mashup” by the Village Voice, Zion80 explores Jewish music through the lens of the Afrobeat funk master Fela Anikulapo Kuti. Led by Jon Madof (Rashanim, Matisyahu), the 10-piece band arranges Jewish melodies using the polyrhythmic intensity of Afrobeat, blended with the 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.

Klezmer-rock band Golem was founded by Annette Ezekiel Kogan in New York City, and since then, the band (Annette Ezekiel Kogan, Aaron Diskin, Jeremy Brown, Curtis Hasselbring, Taylor Bergren-Chrisman and Tim Monaghan) has become a leading re-interpreter and innovator of Yiddish and Eastern European music. Golem is known for its theatricality and fearless wild energy, combined with a boundless love of tradition. Golem is “not your father’s klezmer band, unless of course your father was Sid Vicious” (The Jewish Week).
