Musical concert underwritten by Judy Estrin

Idan Raichel is an Israeli musician/composer/producer known for  specializing in the fusion of  musical traditions of many nations. Called “the Idan Raichel Project”, it has captured the imagination, and following, of people around the world.  In 2006, the group conducted a tour to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, and for the Israeli band members who were born in Ethiopia, the experience was one of profound emotion. This film follows the group as it anticipates, arrives, and performs in the heart of Africa. Great music throughout.
