Shotei ha’Nevuah are truly a musical phenomenon. Selected Israel’s “Band of the Year for 2005 (no small feat considering the amount of talent in the Holy Land), Shotei ha’Nevuah (The Fools of Prophecy) is an Israeli supergroup which combines reggae, dub, hip hop and dance spiced with an eastern Mediterranean flavor, singing in Hebrew, Arabic and English. I had the pleasure of playing with Shotei ha’Nevuah in Israel this past year, and I can attest — they put on a damn good show live, and their powerful music has been called a “message of peace and pluralism.”
So I knew when I got the email, I had to spread the word on this little note from DJ Handler and Shemspeed tout de suite.
The headlining finale to the Sephardic Music Festival, P’shutei ha’Am (The Simple People), consisting of the founding members of Shotei ha’Nevuah, are celebrating the last two nights of Chanukah with us in New York at the Knitting Factory:
