The national cantor, Dudu Fisher, is working on a reggae hip-hop album. Yes, you heard right. He came up with the idea when he hosted Matisyahu three years ago at his son's wedding. Matisyahu, an anonymous performer at the time, sang together with Fisher. "I thought it would be nice to take songs we all remember from our grandparents and give them a contemporary twist of hip hop and reggae," says Fisher. After dozens of CDs in Hebrew and in Yiddish, a lead role in Les Miserable, an off- Broadway show based on his life, and appearances with the Israeli Symphony Orchestra conducted by Zubin Mehta, Fisher is launching his 23rd album, "Shabbat Shalom." The launch of this album which features traditional Shabbat songs coincides with another album, in English, called "Standing Where You Are," featuring songs for "gentiles," by Fisher's definition. Several years ago Fisher also broke into the children's market but he laughs about it, saying Yuval, the idol of many Israeli kids, should not be worried. He continues to laugh about a camel that tried to bite him on the shoulder during the shooting of his new children's DVD "In Dudu's Garden" – the 12th DVD in the series that has become a hit with Jews and Israelis kids worldwide. . If that wasn't enough, Fisher is busy working on an album of songs about Jerusalem an Israeli songs album, a project with Evangelical Christians and a new musical in the US.
