"Keter" from John Zorn "Masada Book Three – The Book Beriah"
"With exquisite poetry and elegant, spellbinding arrangements from two musicians with established chemistry, Keter ventures into previously unexplored Masada territory, providing one of the most tender and beautiful moments in the project’s history.”- The Music & Myth

After 4 years in the works, Sofia Rei and JC Maillard’s duo album "Keter" is finally out as part of an 11-CD special edition boxset that includes albums by Cleric, Spike Orchestra, Julian Lage & Gyan Riley, Abraxas, Klezmerson, Gnostic Trio, Zion80, Banquet of the Spirits and Secret Chiefs 3. In 2018, an important story reaches its final chapter. For a quarter of a century, John Zorn’s Masada has been a consistently exciting and influential presence in the landscape of adventurous music, involving renowned artists such as Dave Douglas, Bill Frisell, Marc Ribot, Pat Metheny, John Medeski, Martin & Wood and many more. With this third and final songbook, The Book Beriah, he concludes the Masada series with 92 compositions over 11 albums, presented by some of the world’s most accomplished musicians. In a unique project for voice and saz bass, longtime collaborators Sofia Rei and JC Maillard offer a superbly intimate and introspective study of the acclaimed source material. With lyrics by Rei and arrangements by both musicians, the songs explore a variety of topics, from love and solitude, to the ghost of Frida Kahlo and a childhood under dictatorship in Argentina. A captivating duet of unprecedented synergy, Keter has been coined "a standout addition to the Masada catalog”.

Sofia Rei is an award winning vocalist, songwriter and producer form Buenos Aires, Argentina and based in New York City. Her music explores connections between the various traditions of South American folklore, jazz, flamenco and electronic sounds.

Rotterdam-based band Tommy Moustache and Sheep Got Waxed from Lithuania zap through extremely diverse genres in an explosive new collaboration.

The admiration was mutual when Tommy Moustache and Sheep Got Waxed crossed paths at a festival in Denmark. Shortly after that these eccentric and unpredictable bands decided to join forced on stage, resulting in an explosive and inflammable combination of two drummers, two guitarists, two sax players, a bassist and a huge stack of electronics.

The music Tommy Moustache has been described by critics as propulsive, mildly schizophrenic and heavily confusing alternative zap jazz. Sheep Got Waxed conjured similar unique descriptions, including ‘a mix of techno, footwork, Death Grips kind of trap and George Michael played by early Beatles. But the music also contains free jazz and metal influences according to the band members.
