Idan Raichel, Matisyahu & Y-Love Live

Sigh. 1000+ screaming fans at a sold out Jewish hip-hop show. Sounds like I missed quite the party. Idan Raichel backed by DJ Handler played last night and were joined on stage by Matisyahu and Y-Love. Of course that stage was MMFH (many miles from here) in New York, but YouTube to the rescue. The concert was hosted by Shemspeed, DJ Handler's new Jewish Music web site, PR agency, and sister project to Handler's Modular Moods record company.

"Idan Raichel and dj handler are all set to perform at Irving Plaza when Shemspeed's good friends Matisyahu and Y-Love let us know they are coming through. We suggest that all of them do a song together. Everyone is psyched and the second they hit the stage it is like a bomb of excitement went off with the sold out thousand+ crowd! Here is what went down! www.shemspeed.com"
By the way, I should drop a note about the upcoming Sephardic Music Festival. It's in New York during Channukah and will feature "Pshutei Ha'am (ex Shotie Hanevua), Smadar, Ayelet Rose Gottlieb, Hadag Nachash, Y-Love, Soulico, Consuelo Luz, Piamenta and countless others will be performing in venues ranging from BB Kings to Spanish Portugusse Synagaogue and from Joe's Pub to Webster Hall."

Hat Tip to Y-Love who dropped me a note about the concert and video. Thanks!
