Israeli Pop Icon Idan Raichel Project at the Berklee Performance Center (March 24th – Tuesday at 7:30 p.m.)

idan-raichel-12The global fusion band Idan Raichel Project blends diverse sounds from Africa, Latin America, the Caribbean, and the Middle East in order to spread its musical message of peace throughout the world. Lead by composer, producer, arranger Idan Raichel, they have become a principle force in the evolution of Israel pop music and from the top of the country’s music charts have gone on to become extremely popular world-wide with the 2006 release of their very first album The Idan Raichel Project.  Billboard has dubbed the group  a “multi-ethnic tour de force” while both the New York Times and BBC Radio 3 have crowned this release “best of the year” in its category.  Also in 2006, they furthered their mission of worldly goodwill by historically becoming the first Israeli band to perform in Ethiopia, a venture which was later to become the basis of a documentary film entitled Black Over White.
