Italian premiere

The Idan Raichel Project burst onto Israel’s music scene in 2002, changing the face of Israeli popular music and offering a message of love and tolerance that resonated strongly in a region of the world where headlines are too often dominated by conflict. With an enchanting blend of African, Latin American, Caribbean and Middle Eastern sounds coupled with sophisticated production techniques and a spectacular live show, the Idan Raichel Project has become one of the most unexpected success stories in Israeli music history.
The architect of this unique recording project is keyboardist, producer and composer Idan Raichel, born in Kfar Saba, a small city near Tel Aviv, in 1977.

In November 2008, The Idan Raichel Project released the album Within my walls in Israel to tremendous acclaim. Much of Within my walls was recorded over the past few years while Idan was on tour. His poetic lyrics reflect these travels and contemplations; sung in Hebrew, Moroccan Arabic, Spanish, Cape Verdean Creole and Swahili, the songs address the struggle for personal fulfillment and the true meaning of love in a conflicted and complex world.
