Captured: Jewish rapper Matisyahu performs at Northwestern

April 1, 2016

 
“Instead of the usual classical or jazz music, Pick-Staiger Concert Hall was filled with a psychedelic light show, thumping bass and the reggae, hip-hop and rock sounds of Grammy-nominated musician Matisyahu.
 
Matisyahu took the stage Thursday sporting a man bun, trendy black joggers and high-top sneakers. It was a different look than the one that made him famous as a Hasidic reggae artist who wore traditional orthodox attire and sported a beard. That changed in 2011, when he shaved his beard and renounced his Hasidic faith.”
