I don’t really know how I met the music of Idan Raichel.
It was a chance, casually, looking at the Facebook pages of friends: I immediately fell in love with his music.
Idan Raichel is a global music Icon and, even if he likes to say that his music is a world music, his work is emblematic of Israel. I dare to say that his music is the real heart of Israel.
You can find a mixture of all influences from all over the word, intersections, interactions and all the fusion of enchanting melodies. It is impossible not to love him.
The music they play represents Israel: it brings together all ethnics backgrounds, all genre of sounds and different atmosphere. This is the reason why Idan Raichel is like Israel: he brings together all the ethnical backgrounds from all over the regions of the world.
An interesting aspect of his work is that his band of talented artists, musicians and singers are the protagonist on the stage, even if Idan is the key leader and the master that orchestrate the whole ensemble. However, definitely his band is great and awesome.
I had the opportunity to meet him and to have an interview with him. Needless to say that he is the most kind and gentle person ever, available and kind. After the interview, I could assist to his concert in the Music Festival held in Rishon Le Trzyyon. The atmosphere was astonishing and all the people started dancing and singing all together creating an environment full of friendship and happiness. Two hours of pure enthusiasm in which Idan performed songs of his repertoire, old and new ones. On the stage, musician and singers were dancing together with the public. On the background, we could see pictures of a rare beauty, enhancing the overall emotional effect.
Idan Raichel is the Musician and artist that everybody should know: his music is exceptional, awesome and evocative of ancient ethnic melodies.
