This week, we have an exclusive performance to share with you by Israeli composer, pianist and producer Idan Raichel.
Israel is putting its best face forward for President Obama, and what better face to put forward for America's first black president than Israel's first black beauty queen?
The multi-ethnic and multilingual Idan Raichel Project has set out to change how the world views the Middle East. But the project's creator sees potential for expanding the project's impact far beyond music.
Idan Raichel and Vieux Farka Touré are bestselling artists in their respective countries: Israel and Mali. A chance encounter at an airport in Germany led to a collaboration that is now out on CD titled "The Touré-Raichel Collective."
