SOLO & THE IDAN RAICHEL PROJECT
Producer, keyboardist, Lyricist, composer and Performer Idan Raichel is a global music icon who has brought his inspiring example and soul-stirring music to some of the planet’s biggest stages. As the leader of The Idan Raichel Project, Idan acts as a musical ambassador representing a hopeful world in which artistic collaboration breaks down barriers between people of different backgrounds and beliefs. Over the past 13 years, Idan has collaborated with American pop stars India.Arie, Dave Matthews and Alicia Keys, not to mention a wide range of artists who are household names in their native countries: Portugal’s Ana Moura, France’s Patrick Bruel, Italy’s Ornella Vanoni, Germany’s Andreas Scholl, and Mali’s Vieux Farka Touré to name but a few. The Idan Raichel Project’s spectacular live show has enchanted audiences worldwide. They have headlined in some of the world’s most prestigious venues, including New York’s Central Park Summer Stage, Apollo Theater, Town Hall and Radio City Music Hall, Los Angeles’ Kodak Theater, the Sydney Opera House, Zenith in Paris, London’s Royal Albert Hall and many international festivals. They have also performed across Europe, South & Central America, Hong Kong, Singapore, India, Ethiopia, South Africa, Ghana, Japan and dozens of other countries for enraptured audiences of all backgrounds.
In his solo concerts, Idan shares with his listeners, in an organic and intimate way, the stories of his journey of the last 12 years and also how his melodies and songs were written before being produced for the numerous collaborations & concerts around the globe. Idan will play acoustic Piano, Electric Piano, Percussion, Drum pad & looper and even some chosen toys of his 2 young Austrian daughters, which he uses to create sound in honour & celebration of his fairly new status as a father. His solo concerts will be an exciting and enticing sound & song experience, but, keeping close to his love for collaborations, Idan will be expecting local guest-musicians on stage in every city for a duet or such – by inviting to join him via the digital platforms before each show.
