Mycale

Mycale is a group of four vocalists-composers-arrangers, put together by John Zorn in 2009 to create an a cappella quartet that would collaboratively arrange selections from his Book of Angels’ compositions.

 

Expressive and passionate, Ayelet Rose Gottlieb, Sofia Rei, Sara Serpa and Malika Zarra are four of the most creative vocalists around.

 

Each a band-leader, composer, arranger and improviser in her own right, they come together here in an intimate setting to interpret Zorn’s music and give it the flavors of their diverse cultural backgrounds.
