Israeli Cultural Spotlight: The Idan Raichel Project

This post is the first of several (I hope) that will highlight examples of Israeli culture and share with you all some things that I think are really cool about Israel. If you have suggestions for the Israeli Cultural Spotlight - music, visual art, dance, cinema, craft, whatever - email me (shalomisraelblog[at]gmail[dot]com) and I'll share it!

The Idan Raichel Project mixes musical influences from the "Israeli melting pot" to create unique and moving songs. Uniquely combining Ethiopian folk influences (Do you know about Ethiopian Jews and their aliyah to Israel? Learn more here.)Exceptionally popular, you've probably heard some of the songs from the Idan Raichel Project on the radio in the US and didn't even know that you were listening to Hebrew!

Sit back. Listen - most of it's Hebrew! and BUY!
