An Acoustic Evening With Matisyahu

An Acoustic Evening With Matisyahu

Matisyahu comes to Tampa Feb. 13! With his debut record in 2004, Matisyahu came on the music scene in a completely original way. “Here was a Hasidic Jew -- dressed in a black suit with a broad-brimmed black hat worn over a yarmulke, and sporting a full, untrimmed beard -- who nevertheless performed toasting raps about the glories of traditional Judaism over reggae beats in a dancehall style directly from Jamaica,” says All Music. But people responded in a big way to his one-of-a-kind sound; two of his albums have gone gold, and his newest, Light, spent 34 weeks at #1 on the US reggae charts. Matisyahu’s music transcends genre, culture, and expectation with soulful, spiritual music that takes equally from hip-hop, dancehall, and contemporary reggae-pop.

But this isn’t just an ordinary concert. Experience an intimate evening with Matisyahu, as he presents his music and his story in a particularly personal way: acoustically. Visit Buy your Matisyahu Tampa tickets by clicking the link on this page.
