This week the Israel Beat Jewish Music Podcast takes you backstage at the Yellow Submarine in Jerusalem to meet BenYomen. Find out how this Chabad hip hop Hebrew musician came from the streets of Los Angeles to adhere to Torah messages through modern beats in Israel. This interview was conducted with backing band the Dead Soul Scrolls and Saadya Tzvi. For some impromptu interaction, on-the-spot hip hop and funny tales of the Israeli music scene and a little bit of magic, tune in. Music featured included the Dead Soul Scrolls featuring David Levy, Saadya Tzvi, BenYomen featuring Yehuda and more.
