The Idan Raichel Project

Israel's dreadlocked superstar Idan Raichel has been called "a one-man Middle East peace accord" by the Times of London, thanks to his bringing together strains of Israeli, Arab and Ethiopian folkloric music. But his sonic reach is quite a bit wider than that. With his ever-changing cast in the Idan Raichel Project, employing singers from the ages of 16 to 91 at various junctures, the keyboardist and songwriter has also deftly and tastefully incorporated West African, Latin and world pop/R&B into his musical mix. Raichel's notably collaborated with Vieux Farka Toure, India.Arie, Portuguese fado star Ana Moura, and Alicia Keys. He's also co-written a song with Shimon Peres, and played public and private concerts for Barack Obama. An impressive, unstoppable fellow, and a seemingly boundless bandleader. Tom Surowicz
