Jewish American reggae singer Matisyahu returns to Israel next month with a concert on December 2 at Jerusalem’s Zedekiah’s Cave.

The singer, currently on a world tour with his latest album, “Undercurrent,” is hosting intimate evenings at bars and spaces throughout the tour, including the December 2, 9 p.m. concert in Jerusalem.

Zedekiah’s Cave, also known as Solomon’s Quarries, is an underground space the size of five city blocks under the Muslim Quarter of Jerusalem’s Old City, and is often used for live performances.

The city is offering free shuttles to and from the cave from The First Station parking lot on the evening of the show.

Matisyahu’s latest single is “Coming From Afar,” released last spring, featuring Jamaican reggae singer Mavado.

Billboard Magazine called the single a “rambunctious reggae-infused track that finds both Matis and Mavado bouncing along in their comfort zones as they swap verses.”

Tickets are available at the Bimot website.
