Appearing at the Chutzpah! Festival in Vancouver on February 14,  the Vancouver Sun profiles Idan Raichel whose Idan Raichel Project, which released its debut album in 2002, has regrouped over 70 musicians from all over the globe, including veterans from Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Surinam, South Africa and the Caribbean.  Known for their bombastic performances blending traditional Israeli music with African rhythms and Eastern European influences, the genre-bending group doesn’t shy away from crossing borders and breaking boundaries, reaching out to Palestinians, crossing over into Ethiopia, and joining forces with Mali’s Vieux Farka Toure.
