The Idan Raichel Project burst onto the global music scene in 2003,
changing the face of Israeli popular music and offering “a fascinating
window into the young, tolerant, multi-ethnic Israel taking shape away
from the headlines” (Boston Globe). The Project’s blend of
African, Latin American, Caribbean and Middle Eastern sounds, coupled
with a spectacular live show, has enchanted audiences worldwide.
Raichel has collaborated with Malian singer and guitarist Vieux Farka Toure to record The Tel Aviv Session in 2012. The album has been hailed by the media as “a masterpiece” (about.com), “simply divine” (Giant Step), “deeply affecting” (The Wall Street Journal), “a cross cultural triumph” (Time Out Chicago) and “the best album this year” (Pop Matters).
The album reached the number one spot on the iTunes World Music sales
charts and peaked at number 2 on the Billboard World Music Chart.
