DVD: Matisyahu rocks the Holy Land

New DVD by rapper member of the Chabad-Lubavitch Hassidic community to hit stores worldwide

A new DVD by Matisyahu, the Hebrew and stage name of Matthew Paul Miller, a popular American Jewish reggae artist, will be available at stores internationally commencing December 26th.


The DVD was filmed at the Israeli Barbie night club in December of last year when Matisyahu came to Israel to perform in front of Israeli audiences both at the Barbie Club and at the Ma'abada club in Jerusalem.


In June of this year Matisyahu visited Israel again to give the opening act for Sting and another unforgettable performance at the Barbie Club.


The DVD titled Live in Israel includes the Tel Aviv performance along with interviews, street performances filmed in Jerusalem and a disk of Matisyahu's remixes. The majority of remixes were produced by Sly and Robbie and the veteran musician Bill Laswell, who also produced Matisyahu's last album Youth.


Rising star

The DVD includes 12 songs performed live including Chop 'Em Down, Close my Eyes, King without a Crown, and a cover version for the song Rastaman Chant by Bob Marley.


For the past two years Matisyahu has taken the music world by storm. His last album Youth captured the hearts of the American public and quickly spread to the rest of the world.


His first Album Shake off the Dust… Arise was recorded in 2004, when he also recorded an album of his live show called Live at Stubb's.
