There's no shortage of good reggae in New York City but there's no denying
the unique perspective that Matisyahu brings to the mix. An observant
Lubavitcher, Matisyahu integrates the power and passion of reggae rhythms
into his day to day life; fusing a conscious persuasive sound that merges
Bob Marley, Nelly, and Schlomo Carlebach. Matisyahu has brought his
genre-defying breed of Hassidic reggae to audiences nationwide, appearing at
venues like NYC's Makor and the Knitting Factory and cementing a bond
between Jewish and Jamaican reggae artists. His show at the BAMcafŽ promises
to be inspiring.
