A rabbi brings North African and Arabic sounds to world music and Jewish prayer.
“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!
