Sofia Rei & JC Maillard Duo
Sofia Rei is one of the most creative singers working today. A veteran of several Zorn ensembles including Mycale and the Song Project, this intimate reading of Masada compositions is imaginative, driving and heartfelt.

A spectacular reading of Masada material drawing upon the rich tradition of Mexican music from Oaxaca to Veracruz, touching upon Henry Mancini, Xavier Cugat and psychedelia along the way. This is one of the most joyful projects in the entire series—and is great music to dance to!
