Idan Raichel

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.

Following the release of the album in early 2016, Raichel started touring his new solo piano concerts titled “Idan Raichel - Piano - Songs”. His plans for 2017 include extensive solo piano tours across Europe and the US.
