Hasidic Reggae

Matisyahu is a Hasidic Reggae artist from New York. There are sound and video samples on his site. Here's a bit about him:

Combining the sounds of Bob Marley and Shlomo Carlebach, yet remaining wholly original, Matisyahu's performance is an uplifting, powerful experience for all in his presence. Even the most pessimistic in his audience is inspired by his ability to so honestly convey such a delicate, topic as faith/spirituality. It is his dedication to his belief and openness to others that compels one to respect his artistry and message. It's in that fleeting moment when our skepticism melts and our souls open up, that Matisyahu enters with his booming sound of faith.

There is a clip of an appearance of his on The Jimmy Kimmel Show Here.
