Israel’s top recording artist Idan Raichel will perform at the Jorgensen Center for the Performing Arts on the UConn campus on Wednesday, Feb. 20
at 8 p.m.
Idan Raichel, creator and leader of the Idan Raichel Project, has been described by the New York Times, as having arrangements that “bind the voices together in somber minor-mode anthems paced by electronic beats, earnestly seeking to uplift.”
The Project’s blend of African, Latin American, Caribbean and Middle Eastern sounds, coupled with a spectacular live show, has enchanted audiences worldwide. They have headlined in some of the world’s most prestigious venues, including New York’s Central Park Summer Stage, Los Angeles’ Kodak Theater, the Apollo Theater, the Sydney Opera House and Radio City Music Hall. They have also performed across Europe, South & Central America, Hong Kong, India, Ethiopia, South Africa, and Singapore to enraptured audiences of all backgrounds.
Tickets for the concert are $20 for adults, $10 for UConn students, and $7 for Birthright alumni. To purchase tickets call (860) 486-4226 or visit www.jorgensen.uconn.
