Matisyahu to Perform and Speak at Truman

The Student Activities Board will host the Big Spring Event with musical artist and speaker Matisyahu at 7 p.m. April 8 in Baldwin Auditorium. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m.

Matisyahu will host a concert, followed by a question-and-answer session. All tickets are free and may be picked up at the SAB Office in the lower level of the Student Union Building.

Matisyahu's breakout album, "Live at Stubbs," was released in 2005. It reached No. 1 on the Reggae Albums Chart and No. 30 on the Billboard 200, and established his early success as a “Hasidic reggae super-star.”

Over the years, Matisyahu has shown that he is an artist that possesses great creativity and has proved himself as very dynamic, remaking his musical image with each successive album. His most recent album “Akeda,” released in 2014, is described as being his most personal. While he has received backlash for changing his musical presence, he has rightfully stood by his most “self-reflective and purely conceived album” to date.
