Matisyahu’s Festival of Light
On Saturday night, Matisyahu stopped by Sullivan Hall where he guested with SOJA on ‘911’ and ‘To Whom It May Concern.’ This was the prelude to his annual Festival of Light run, which coincides with Chanukkah. Last evening, Matisyahu opened his Chanukkah series at New York’s Webster Hall with Crystal Method providing support. During Matisyahu’s set, Shalom Mor sat in on oud and other stringed instruments during a dub jam that segued into ‘Aish Tamid’ and ‘Smash Lies’ (a version of the latter song on the Shattered EP also features Mor). Later during the encore, Stan Ipcus (vocals) and Nosson Zand (vocals) sat in for a hip-hop sequence. Matiyshau and his band will return to Webster Hall this evening.
