International musician IDAN RAICHEL , well known and loved as the band leader of the Idan Raichel Project over the last 12 years, is taking a bold new move, by returning to the audience SOLO. In line and inspired by the likes of i.e.: Caetano Veloso, Dave Matthews and even Prince, IDAN says, that this comes very natural to him and that he is excited to share the new experience with the world’s stages live in 2017.
IDAN, solo on stage, will play acoustic Piano, Electric Piano, Percussion, Drum pad & looper and even some chosen toys of his 2 young Austrian daughters, which he uses to create sound in honour & celebration of his fairly new status as a father.
After his latest stint of 30 sold out piano shows with band, Idan has decided to take this time and moment of his career to dedicate himself to the solo performance.
In his solo concerts, IDAN shares with his listeners, in an organic and intimate way, the stories of his journey of the last 12 years and also how his melodies and songs were written before being produced for the numerous collaborations & concerts around the globe.
IDAN RAICHEL has recently been honoured by the Martin Luther King Institute for bringing the voices of the minorities and new migrants to the mainstream and for his effortless work in uniting people from different backgrounds, beliefs and cultures through music.
In these solo concerts IDAN will present songs from his entire career, including his latest album “At The Edge Of The Beginning”.
His solo concerts will be an exciting and enticing sound & song experience, but, keeping close to his love for collaborations, IDAN will be expecting local guest-musicians on stage in every city for a duet or such - by inviting to join him via the digital platforms before each show.
