Idan Raichel Project

Idan Raichel is an Israeli musician who released a very popular album in 2002 entitled, The Idan Raichel Project.  His "project" is a mix of musical genres: pop, folk, electronica all make appearances on his albums.  This helps him to create some interesting music, but the really interesting thing, and what I think makes him especially noteworthy, is that he mixes cultures in a way that is sincere and without pedantry.  There are few artists out there that have songs with well-written lyrics in Hebrew, Spanish, Arabic, and Zulu.

The song below is off the self-titled 2002 album. Learn more about the Idan Raichel Project at their website, here.
