|Luciano. has earned praise for his conscious messages|
Roots singer Luciano will shortly collaborate with Hasidic DJ Matisyahu, one of the hottest acts currently on the international music scene. The track is slated to be included on Luciano's upcoming disc for VP Records.
The 'Messenjah' and 'Matis' first met in the summer of 2005 when the latter opened for Luciano on his east coast US tour. Recently, the two combined to tremendous applause on the west coast during Matisyahu's show at the Long Beach Arena. The performance attracted the attention of the entertainment section of the Los Angeles Times newspaper.
The track has reportedly been laid by Luciano's Jah Messenjah band, with Dean Fraser at the helm, and sent to the Jewish DJ in California.
A native of the White Plains section of Brooklyn, New York, Matisyahu first became hooked on reggae music as a teenager listening to the sounds of Bob Marley. He so far has recorded two albums, a live set, Live at Stubbs, that was certified gold, and a studio follow-up, entitled Youth, that entered the Billboard 200 Albums chart at #4 its first week of release (March 6). The single, King Without A Crown, was a recent Top 40 hit.

One of the most revered reggae artistes to emerge over the last decade, Luciano has earned raves for his conscious messages and highly personal style of performing. His best-known albums include One Way Ticket, Where There is Life and Messenjah.
