THE IDAN RAICHEL PROJECT Comes to Town Hall, 1/12 & 13
Since bursting onto the international music scene in 2003, The Idan Raichel Project has shattered expectations of Israeli pop with their unique blend of African, Latin American, Caribbean, and Middle Eastern sounds, coupled with a spectacular live show. The project continues to push musical boundaries garnering strong critical praise and winning over audiences worldwide. On January 12 and 13, the complete 12-musician lineup will be headlining two evenings at the prestigious Town Hall in New York City during the APAP conference. The Idan Raichel Project will be performing their biggest hit songs alongside new material from their upcoming album which will be released later in 2013.
Idan Raichel, the creator and leader of the Project, began his musical journey by inviting collaborations from artists of different generations, multiple ethnicities and singing in languages as diverse as Hebrew, Spanish, Arabic, Amharic and Swahili. The resulting albums shattered sales records in Israel, made Raichel his country's biggest
musical breakthrough, and sold over half a million records worldwide. The Idan Raichel Project has headlined some of the world's most prestigious venues, including New York's Central Park SummerStage, Radio City Music Hall and The Apollo Theater, Los Angeles' Kodak Theater, the Sydney Opera House and the Bataclan in Paris. They have also performed across Europe, South & Central America, Hong Kong, India, Ethiopia, Ghana, South Africa, and Singapore to enraptured audiences of all backgrounds.
Don't miss this opportunity to catch what the Boston Globe calls "a fascinating window into the young, tolerant, multi-ethnic Israel taking shape away from the headlines."
