Zola Jesus In Concert

Download Audio

52 min 3 sec

As a kid growing up in rural Wisconsin, Nika Roza Danilova wanted to sing opera, but youthful insecurities and performance anxiety kept the diminutive singer from finding her voice. By her late teens, Danilova found it instead in the dark and brooding worlds of goth and experimental synth-rock. In 2006, she began writing and performing as Zola Jesus, and in the past two years released a torrent of intense, mesmerizing songs on three EPs and three full-length albums, including this fall's Conatus.

You can hear Zola Jesus recorded in this full concert, originally webcast live on NPR Music from (Le) Poisson Rouge in NYC Oct. 19, 2011.
