There's music from the expected places, like Brooklyn's Andy Statman, David Krakauer's Klezmer Madness, and some from very unexpected places. Hear Cuban-Jewish music from Roberto Rodriguez, and a DJ collaboration from Socalled, along with some Afrobeat-meets-Jewish Nigerian style arrangements of Jewish wordless songs of praise from Zion80.

For this New Sounds, hear arrangements of Jewish wordless songs of praise from around the world.  There’s Nigerian style Afrobeat, trancey jazz, Afro-cuban dance music, a DJ collaboration, and music from the Jewish people of Uganda.  A Fela Kuti-style band, led by guitarist Jon Madof does up the prayers that Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach set to music, and takes as its name “Zion80,” a nod to Fela’s “Nigeria 70/Africa 70.”
