Matisyahu Jewish (Hasidic) Reggae music!
Okay so it is pronounced somthing like, "Matis Yahoo" but it is all about the Music.. like reggae that has come before, it is about the spirit, god, and life,.
When I first heard of Matisyahu I htough it was some sort of bad joke, but if you go to the link above you will see that this man is serious about his music and the thoughts and feelings it can communicate.

When I went out on google looking for informaiton , I started by spelling his name wrong, I spelled it Matisyahn, and still I found him. This says that he has made an impact at least in the cyber world, and I think after a listen , if you are a Reggae fan like I am, he will be a hit with you too.

Funny how somtimes you think you will be writing a "review of things that suck" and end up pleasantly supprised in the end.
Two thumbs up for Matis!

Here are a few tour dates..
I hope you can see a show.
