Zion80’s amazing percussionist Marlon Sobol has been setting Hasidic songs (known as ‘nigunim’) to Afro-Cuban rhythms. This is very much in the spirit of Zion80, combining Jewish music with various other genres and flavors. He and Jon made their first video in what will hopefully be an ongoing project called ‘Nigunim in Clave.’ Enjoy!
Ok folks, here’s the deal. We reached and surpassed our funding goal on PledgeMusic. Now we’re taking it to the next level by offering a preorder of the WARRIORS album on 12″ vinyl LP. But we need to sell 50 copies by June 30 to get there. And we’ll even sign it for you 🙂
It may have seemed a bit quiet in Zion80 land recently, but rest assured we’re working super hard to get everything ready for the epic release of WARRIORS!
We’ve updated the Zion80 Vinyl Challenge so that we need to sell just 50 preorders of the WARRIORS album on a 12″ vinyl LP in order to be able to manufacture it. But we need to do it by JUNE 30 so we have enough time to have it ready for release. If we’re able to do it, it’ll be Zion80’s very first release on vinyl. Which would be so sweet…
Now that the Zion80 PledgeMusic campaign has been funded (with 200 pledges!), we’re taking it to the next level. We’re now offering the full WARRIORS album on 12″ VINYL in the Zion80 store. BUT – there’s a very important condition: In order to manufacture the vinyl, we need to sell a minimum of 75 copies.Help us get there by pledging today and sharing with friends.
We reached our goal on PledgeMusic for the WARRIORS project. Thank you so much to everyone who pledged!!!!
The store will remain open until the album is released. So if you didn’t join us in the funding part of the project, you can still get on board with a preorder of the new album. Just go to http://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/zion80
With just over TWO WEEKS to go in our PledgeMusic campaign, Zion80 is almost 70% there. Victory is in sight, just a few more laps to go… Join us now in releasing WARRIORS, our first collection of original music: pledgemusic.com/zion80
