Description

“World Fusion Beat Scientists” ZOHAR are led by composer, producer and multi-instrumentalist Erran Baron Cohen, whose credits also include the popular Da Ali G Show and Borat movie soundtracks. (Erran is the brother of Sasha Baron Cohen aka Ali G aka Borat)

ZOHAR weaves together the beats and textures of modern club culture with hareem, hip-hop, electronica, dub and future grooves. It is a deconstruction of past, present and future, spanning Jewish Cantors, Arab Muezzins, Byzantine chants and today’s modern jazz and experimental musicians. Their approach is resolutely experimental and uncompromising with an instinctive feel for lush cinematic arrangements and intelligent melodies.

The brand new second album by ZOHAR
Do You Have any Faith? builds on their reputation as underground pioneers of the oriental inspired jazzical influenced dance scene, that produced the legendry Buddha Bar compilations, Thievery Corporation, Dhizan and Kamien, Gotan Project and many others.
