Over the past 6 years Shemspeed has produced theÂ Sephardic Music FestivalÂ in NYC, highlighting the remarkable diversity that exists within the Jewish community. This is the first music festival to focus exclusively on the less familiar but captivating culture of the Jewish communities of Spain/Portugal, North Africa, the Middle East, and Central Asia. They just announced a slew of new performers and special guests to this year’s HEEBONISM, including Tesly Snipes, the world famous Brooklyn based DJ, JahFurry, Heeb writing reggae dittyer, Y-Love, the revolutionary emcee and Tj Di Hitmaker, the Jamaican dancehall Jersey bwoy.
