The Idan Raichel Project, Live in Concert
"Idan Raichel is Israel's answer to Peter Gabriel, a collaborator who thrives on musical collisions and cross-fertilization." —The Irish Times
The Idan Raichel Project exploded onto the global music scene in 2003, changing the face of Israeli popular music and offering "an ambitious celebration of multicultural diversity... an ambient journey that thrillingly bridges the traditional and modern" (The Times, London). As creator and leader of the Project, Idan Raichel began his musical journey by collaborating with artists of multiple generations, ethnicities, and languages—from Hebrew, Spanish, and Arabic to Amharic and Swahili. The resulting albums shattered sales records in Israel, sold over half a million records worldwide, and catapulted Raichel to international stardom. The Project was honored as Israel's 'Musical group of the Decade' in 2010, and the song 'Mima'amakim' was named 'Best Song of the Decade.' With a spectacular blend of African, Latin American, Caribbean, and Middle Eastern sounds, the Project's live show has captivated audiences across the globe.
