The music of RebbeSoul has been described as “World Fusion stemming from the Jewish Diaspora, a mix of ancient and modern, and a blend of East and West.” It highlights Russian balalaika, electric and acoustic guitars, hip-hop rhythms, Middle Eastern percussion, and flamenco cajónes. RebbeSoul has been featured on CNN International and on the cover of Billboard Magazine as the quintessential and original producer of Jewish Roots and World music. His groundbreaking 1995 album, “Fringe Of Blue,” has become one of the biggest selling Jewish music albums of all time. His “Change The World With A Sound” album was #1 on the CMJ World Music charts.
Havdalah is a Jewish religious ceremony that marks the symbolic end of Sabbath and holidays and ushers in the new week. The ritual involves lighting a special Havdalah candle with several wicks, blessing a cup of wine and smelling sweet spices. Shabbat ends on Saturday night after the appearance of three stars in the sky.
