EDITORS’ NOTES

This Israeli troubadour aims to unite the world through music, putting Hebrew and Arabic lyrics on the same album for the first time. He expands his vision to Portuguese and Ethiopian music as well, while making a few nods to Western pop songwriting and production. If the lyrics were in English, you might mistake the gruff voice and gentle piano on "Ba'Layla" for Billy Joel. Raichel's lyrics are reflective and reassuring; the Hebrew/Portuguese duet "Sabe Dues" notes that religious comfort is universal.

Very eclectic beautifully composed and some of the most beautiful melodies I've ever heard. I have downloaded everything that "the project" has ever done. LONG LIVE ISRAEL!!
