Matisyahu is a symbol-artist for the reggae music of the last decade. His song ‘One Day’ is part of The Official 2010 Fifa World Cup Album, together with Shakira’s ‘Waka Waka’ and other hits of the moment. Matisyahu live shows bring fans from all over the world due to his particular signature, a unique vibration, with strong energy and a distinctive voice in a modern interpretation of reggae and hip-hop. Hippie when he was 14, a young boy wearing dreadlocks that played bongos in lunchroom and learned how to beat-box in the back of the class, Matisyahu explored his deep inner turmoil and, after years of search, he created a way to combine his thoughts on life and values into music through a mix of reggae, hip-hop, pop-rock, new wave-ska or acoustic folk. It is a music that comes from inside, a spiritual dialogue and an intellectual challenge. Matisyahu has a particular honesty and bold creativity. In ‘Watch the World Melt Down’ he creates a powerful contrast between meditation and triumphant music, another brilliant fusion, based on complex emotions, inner daemons and loneliness that competes with an as strong determination to love and rebirth. ‘Open The Gates’ or ‘King without a Crown’ reached, one by one, the Billboard Top 20, and the ‘Youth’ album was nominated for Grammy Awards for Best Reggae Album.
