A couple of weeks I purchased tickets for an Idan Raichel concert in Yaffo through Kastel (a ticketing agency). Idan Raichel's music ranges from Hebrew to Arabic to Ethiopian. The show is appropriately named the Idan Raichel project because it is performed by Idan Raichel and several other singers and musicians from various nationalities and ethnic backgrounds who play all sorts of varied musical instruments. Idan plays the keyboard but he shares the spotlight generously allowing the various members to sing and play the various instruments.
The show was packed with people who were singing and dancing in the aisles. It had an electricity that left me with a great feeling. Mr. Raichel knows how to create the perfect balance - the show was amazingly well executed but also had an authentic feeling; it was the perfect combination of different types of music and songs; lastly, it was just the perfect length.
