Idan Raichel Project

My cousin (in Israel) introduced me to this dreadlocked Israeli artist over the weekend. I suppose we could call him World Fusion, Israel meets Ethiopia. I don't usually think that Hebrew language will blend well with Reggae beats but in this case it really does. Raichel goes well beyond Reggae style but his collaborative efforts with 70 other world-based musicians are mostly funky downtempo, introspective with clever percussion and hauntingly beautiful piano lines. You'll like this for quiet around-the-house days and of course for your next World Fusion Zen Den dinner party.
