Zusha is a Hasidic/soul/folk band seeking to inspire the world through their original music, combining ancient tradition with modern melody. Shlomo Gaisin (lead vocals, ukulele) and Zachariah "juke" Goldschmiedt (guitar, backup vocals), have traveled the world with the messages of torah and unity, playing to sold out audiences around the globe including New York, California, Jerusalem, Toronto, Russia, London and Australia.
After being introduced by a mutual friend in the East Village of New York City, the group instantly became friends and jamming buddies. They would often spend Shabbat together at the Chabad on Bowery, singing and writing melodies that pierced the heavens. Zusha became a natural extension of this friendship, and it continues to be a fundamental energy in their music. The Zusha motto is, friends first, business last.
Almost 3 years later, and Zusha are still finding ways to create and innovate. Most importantly though, they are continuing on their mission to bring light to the world through music, smiles, positive actions.
