Matisyahu: Making Music that Moves
Beliefnet interviews the reggae singer on his fans, his music and the connection he shares with it all.
Matisyahu’s music matters to his fans a great deal, and he makes the concert experience to match. He says, “The main thing is to give people an experience through the music – a way to be in the moment and use the music as a tool for that. When people come to a show, they can lose themselves in the music and have some inner experience."
Later that night, Matisyahu took to the stage like he was born to be there. When he dives into the crowd, he makes his way to his feet, supported by the fans below him. He looks around at all the people who he has entertained and inspired this evening. And he breaks into a grateful smile knowing he’s accomplished exactly what he’s meant to do.
