The album will be released a day before the festival is launched on December 1. The CD will contain 18 tracks influenced in melody, theme and style from Mizrahi music and will feature various popular music genres such as hip-hop, dance and electronic music.
Matisyahu's contribution is titled "Two Child One Drop."
"I collaborated with a Yemenite friend of mine on this song. I loved the idea of combining the Middle-Eastern-Sephardic style with reggae and other musical genres," he told Ynet.
Other Jewish artists from the US scene featured in the album include rappers Y-Love and DeScribe, the Moshav band, Electro Morocco and Diwan Saz. The album also includes contributions from Israeli artists such as Yasmin Levy, Yair Dalal and Michal Cohen.
