Called ‘a truly spiritual experience’ by The New York Times and ‘a marvelous mashup’ by The Village Voice, Zion80’s horn-heavy, polyrhythmic sound has earned them a dedicated legion of worldwide fans. Zion80’s new album Warriors (their third, following two albums on John Zorn’s Tzadik Records), focuses on bandleader and guitarist Jon Madof’s original songs and finds the band delving deeper into their singular mix of deep Afrobeat grooves, mystical Jewish melodies and improvisational madness.
