Ayelet Rose Gottlieb

Jerusalem-born musician Ayelet Rose Gottlieb draws on jazz, Middle-Eastern, and Jewish musical influences to forge an exhilaratingly eclectic sound. At once cutting- edge and rooted in tradition, her vibrant compositions are shape-shifting mélanges of textures and rhythms. A frequent collaborator of forward-thinking artists like composer John Zorn, pianist Anat Fort, and the ETHEL string quartet, Gottlieb performs both original works and covers that she reimagines via her one-of-a-kind sensibility.

Ayelet’s NEW ALBUM “SHIV’A” will be released on FEB 5th, 2016 on the NY/Chicago based label 482music, as a LIMITED EDITION VYNIL + DIGITAL RELEASE! Pre-order links will be available soon! Order quickly as supplies are limited indeed!

Mycale’s second release on Masada Book II: Book of Angels series, featuring their arrangements to compositions by John Zorn, sung in Hebrew, Berber, French, Portuguese and Spanish.

“Gottlieb both soars vocally and uses her voice as equal instrumental partner. She most impresses with her ability to convey a line with devotion and phrasing that powerfully straddles jazz, cantorial and the avant-garde”
