Musical Merging

One of the things that so charms me about music is how permeable it is and allows for merging of style and genre.  Two artists that immediately leap to mind for me are M.C. Yogi and Matisyahu.

A bit of a wild-child,  according to his website: “MC Yogi  was inspired by musicians such as The Beastie Boys & Run DMC, and he began writing raps & freestyling for friends at house parties. Spending most of high school in a group home for at-risk youth, hip hop culture provided both a soundtrack & a creative outlet. Then at age eighteen, he discovered yoga.” 

His life changed dramatically from that point and he began using his talents to inspire people to incorporate world wisdom with musical magic. He is attracting world wide audiences, particularly young people such as he was and inspring them to morph their own lives.

Matisyahyu, whose birth name is Matthew Miller delights audiences of all spiritual backgrounds with his blending of traditional Hebrew concepts, rap and reggae.  Bearded and garbed at times in Hassidic black hat and coat, he celebrates his Jewish heritage musically.
