“One Bead” will be the debut recording of the Epichorus. The melodies of Zach Fredman have been paired with esoteric and mystical verses from the Jewish liturgical tradition; ancient words have been returned to the sounds and rhythms of North Africa and the Middle East, to deepen Jewish prayer, and to create a new sound in world music. Epichorus members are rabbis, cantors, mystics and ethnomusicologists - jazz, arabic, and nubian music masters.
Your most generous gifts will cover the costs of recording, mixing, paying musicians, and printing “One Bead.” Though we will go through with the project for $7,000 - our ideal goal is $10,000. We are overjoyed at the possibility of collaborating with you on this project, and will be greatly indebted to you for all the gifts of your hands. Thanks!
