“Mycale utterly dazzled with their precision harmonies and flute-like intonations” said Downbeat Magazine about Mycale’s performance at the Montreal Jazz Festival.
John Zorn’s Masada is an ongoing cult project (since the 1990s) of this prolific and genre-bending composer. In the last months of 2004, Zorn had composed over 300 new tunes for Masada Book II: The Book of Angels. His record label, Tzadik, has released a series of CDs of these songs played by various ensembles, including Pat Matheny, Masada String Trio, Mary Halverson and more.
Mycale was commissioned by Zorn to arrange, perform and record two (!!) full albums for this remarkable series Mycale: Book of Angels Vol 13, and Gomory: Book of Angels Vol 25
Mycale are: Ayelet Rose Gottlieb (Israel), Sofia Rei (Argentina) and Malika Zarra (Morocco) and Sara Serpa (Portugal.) Sara joined the band in 2013, following Basya Schechter who was a band member from 2007-2012.
