Eyal Maoz


Eyal Maoz is an Israeli born American guitarist, bandleader, solo performer and composer. His music is described as a synthesis of rock, jazz and avant-garde, tinged with deep electronic and radical Jewish-middle-eastern music. John Zorn is quoted as saying “A cutting edge guitarist who combines the harmonic lyricism of Bill Frisell with the angst and skronk of Marc Ribot…keep your eyes and ears on this guy...[Eyal is] a vital member of the New York downtown Scene.” Read more on Last.fm

John Zorn is quoted as saying “A cutting edge guitarist who combines the harmonic lyricism of Bill Frisell with the angst and skronk of Marc Ribot…keep your eyes and ears on this guy...[Eyal is] a vital member of the New York downtown Scene.” He leads a number of original music ensembles including Edom, Dimyon, and Crazy Slavic Band.
