Klezmatics win Grammy! (Matisyahu doesn't)

The Klezmatics won a Grammy in the category of Best Contemporary World Music Album (Vocal or Instrumental) for their album "Wonder Wheel". Wonder Wheel is the Klezmatics take on a set of Woody Guthrie lyrics influenced by his Jewish wife and wife's family. (See CD Baby blurb for full description). Congrats to them for a much deserved award.

I'm sorry, but not stunned, that Matisyahu didn't win for Youth. It's just not that great an album compared to his preceding album "Live at Stubbs". Matisyahu had some serious competition and got whupped.
