Idan Raichel

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.

A journey to Japan

Japan is not only science, development and high technology (as, in fact actually it is). It is a land where tradition meets the future. Japan is an astonishing nation, with outstanding traditions, history, spirituality, rituals and nature. And the People are simply fantastic. Take a journey with us to discover the beauty of such awesome lands and their hidden secrets.

And, remember:

“Japanese society runs like clockwork because everyone (well, almost everyone) follows the rules. That includes you, gaijin aka foreigner”.
