Zion80Maurice Amado Foundation Music Residency and Concert

Stream/Download Zion80 'Live' EP

Zion80 explores Jewish music – from Shlomo Carlebach to John Zorn and everything in between – through the lens of Afrobeat funk. Led by guitarist and composer Jon Madof, the 11-piece band arranges Jewish melodies using the polyrhythmic intensity of Afrobeat, blended with the madness of the New York Downtown scene. Madof’s most ambitious project to date, Zion80 is blazing hot and tight as a drum. Spiritual, grooving, endlessly exciting, this is essential Jewish music for the 21st century. The New York Times describes Zion80’s music as “a truly soulful experience.”
