There was a fire at our studio in 143 Columbus last week. We lost a lot of gear either due to fire or smoke/water damage. We've started a GoFundMe to help pay our employees and cover some of the expenses of relocating and rebuilding. Anyone who would like to help there's a link in our bio. And if you'd like to support our employee's bands/projects there will be links up on the JC Studios website soon. Thanks so much! And hopefully we'll see everyone at a new space soon!

So many people have reached out to express their support - thank you! We've always tried to be the "neighborhood music studio" - so it means a lot when you all have our back.
Right now, we're coming up with ways to raise money to help our staff (6 amazing part-time studio heroes). We just listed some JC Studios t-shirts on our website - please grab one if you can and support our staff!

I’m delighted to announce the release of the Ayin Press Folio | Ya Ghorbati: Divas in Exile.

https://ayinpress.org/folios/-ghorbati-divas-in-exile

"In this multimedia album, singer Laura Elkeslassy musically excavates her family’s history in Morocco, France, and Israel, coming face-to-face with forgotten ancestors and reclaiming her true family name. Developed in collaboration with music director Ira Khonen Temple, this project weaves together the stories of Judeo-Arab divas from the last century with new performances and interpretations of their folk and sacred music. Ya Ghorbati looks across time and space to tell a tale of political upheaval, exile, and displacement—ultimately questioning the supposed binary of Arab and Jew."

The concert featured in this multimedia album, Ya Ghorbati: Divas in Exile, was performed at the Brooklyn Conservatory of Music in June 2021. Concert credits:
