We all have our soundtracks. A song or an artist that truly resonates with people becomes the soundtrack of those people’s lives. For many Jews across the world, and non-Jews as well, Idan Raichel is the soundtrack of some part of their life.Raichel is one of the most well known Israeli artists in the world. Since his hugely successful debut album The Idan Raichel Project was released in 2002, Raichel has zigzagged across the globe on countless tours. He performed a private concert for the visiting President Obama in 2013 (and that was the second time he performed in front of the president) and he’s collaborated with many world renowned artists including Alicia Keys. Ladies and gentlemen, today we are incredibly excited and so honored to be joined by the one and only, Idan Raichel.***Exclusive subscription offer for podcast listeners: Get 6 months of The Forward for only $10 — that’s 67% off: forward.com/2njb
