Bar Kokhba Sextet


Bar Kokhba Sextet

Bar Kokhba Sextet brings together six core members of the Masada family under the leadership of John Zorn. The music act is a dynamic powerhouse full of mysticism and intoxicating improvisation from New York's best downtown artists which includes Cyro Baptista on percussion, Marc Ribot on guitar, Greg Cohen on bass, Joey Baron on drums and Mark Feldman / Erik Friedlander on strings. According to Tzadik, John Zorn's music label, it's sephardic exotica for young moderns.

Trivia

The "Bar Kokhba" album recorded between 1994 & 1996 together with the Masada musical project was the album that started John Zorn's 2nd evolution into Masada Book Two (II) or Book of Angels during the Winter of 2005 at Tonic (New York City) after performing a ravishing set of sessions of filmworks at the Anthology Film Archives in the same city during the Winter of 2004.
