My dear people,
A quick reminder that tomorrow JC and I will celebrate the release of Keter at NUBLU 151. This duo project started in 2014 with just one song at a marathonic Masada concert at Town Hall. Commissioned by the one and only John Zorn, it literally travelled the world but we never got a chance to present it in full in our beloved New York. Come out if you are curious to hear what a saz bass, a stomp box, a charango, a looper, multiple crazy effects and two singers can do if they get into Zorn's universe, Middle Eastern music, jazz, pop, Latin American folk, electronica, new classical, a Frida Kahlo ghost story, the Falkland war, Domingo Faustino Sarmiento, love, solitude, all of the above, none of the above....Come to Nublu, the new space, and hang with us afterwards. Thanks for your continued support!
"KETER" from John Zorn Masada Book 3
"The fabulous voice of Sofía Rei has graced several Zorn vocal projects, from the acappella quartet Mycale to the dynamic Song Project, and here she interprets eight compositions from the Book Beri'ah-the third and last book completing the Masada legacy. Featuring the remarkable JC Maillard on saz bass, the arrangements are incredibly varied, and range from lyrical heartfelt ballads to driving grooves. Intimate and intensely personal, this is one of the most unique Masada CDs in the entire series! Unforgettable."
