WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Rashanim debuts at Joe's Pub with a CD release concert for 'The Gathering' on John Zorn's Tzadik Records. The album features the trio journeying far beyond their electric (and sometimes very loud) setting into a world of much quieter acoustic guitars, banjos, exotic percussion, and ethereal voices. Zorn calls the CD "…a powerful acoustic recording that is perhaps their best to date. …Rashanim joyfully celebrates the Jewish experience with passion, lyricism, and a profound sensitivity." Featuring Jon Madof (guitar, banjo), Shanir Ezra Blumenkranz (acoustic bass guitar and various other instruments), and Mathias Künzli (percussion, voice).
