Zion80 is a 10-piece, horn-heavy band combining the mystical melodies of Jewish music with the polyrhythmic intensity of Afrobeat and the improvisational madness of avant-garde jazz. Led by guitarist, composer and producer Jon Madof (John Zorn, Marc Ribot, Matisyahu, Ruthless Cosmopolitans ), Zion80’s lineup is bolstered by guitars, keys, drums and percussion to create a massive sound that brings audiences to their feet and blasts them right in their souls. Zion80's debut was released on Tzadik Records in 2013. Since then they've released two additional albums on Tzadik, both featuring music by John Zorn: Adramelech in 2014 and The Book Beri’ah, Vol. 8: Hod in 2019. In 2017 they released Warriors on Chant Records (the label founded by Madof and bassist/producer Shanir Ezra Blumenkranz). 
 Zion80's latest, Warriors RMX (Chant Records) features remixes by Madof along with Koby Israelite, Curha and Smoke M2D6/Eprhyme.
