There are many multinational bands performing around the world and many musical projects that blend together different cultures. But, you’d have to look long and hard to find a musical group with more international diversity than the Idan Raichel Project.
Based in Tel Aviv, Israel, the Idan Raichel Project has released four studio albums and a three-CD collection of live recordings in Israel on the Helicon label. On Oct. 24, the large and musically diverse ensemble will perform at the Kimmel Center in Philadelphia.
“We’ve toured America before but this time we’re just playing performing arts centers,” said Raichel, during a recent phone interview from a tour stop in Denver. “This time, we decided to carry a nice truck and bring our own stage set so it looks like a theater.
