  Idan Raichel  reworks the tried-and-true songs that have made him the world music force, while adding new material such as songs from his 2013
critically acclaimed album Quarter to Six. He brings music to the world that blends a bold variety of Middle Eastern, African, Indian, Latin American and funky hip styles that trumpets a message of
conciliation and peace across the Arab-Israeli gulf.

 

“This one-man Middle East peace accord makes music that is an ambitious celebration of multicultural diversity?clearly rewired with modern grooves to create an ambient journey that thrillingly
bridges the traditional and the modern.” ? The Times (London)

 

“High drama pervaded most every song, aided immensely by Raichel’s alternately atmospheric and high-flying keyboard runs, and the shrewd key modulations, deft dynamics and skipping polyrhythms
that charge his well-written material.” – Jerusalem Post

 

“If music is indeed the international language, then Raichel is on track to becoming one of the world’s top linguists” – Performer Magazine

 

Opening for The Idan Raichel Project is Vancouver’s own Babe Gurr. SideDish, her current album, takes this unique singer/songwriter in a different direction, exploring world music fused with her
own roots style. Italian, Spanish, Middle-Eastern, and New Orleans influences are the backdrop of Babe’s musical landscape.
