In 2011, Brooklyn hosted a concert by the now-legendary Matisyahu, with his melange of Hassidic tunes and Jewish sensibility combined with reggae and hip-hop beats. He performs this year in a Manhattan venue.
His last studio album was in 2009, called Light. In 2011 he released a live album, Live at Stubb's, Volume 2. Among his most famous songs are "King Without a Crown", "One Day", "Jerusalem" and "Youth." If you haven't yet, heard him, go.
A cozy happy hour to celebrate the festival of lights at a local shul in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.
