Open Door: India.Arie and Idan Raichel

Neo Soul / R&B

OPEN DOOR is the collaborative project between Grammy award winning India Arie and Israeli superstar, Idan Raichel.

Arie, who has sold over 8 million albums worldwide and is known for her smoldering voice, found her self-described “musical soul mate” in Raichel, a driving force in contemporary world music. In 2008, Arie traveled to Israel and met with producer and composer Raichel, whose records have gone triple platinum.

The duo set on a mission to create a cross-genre collection of songs that would be relevant for a worldwide audience. Stripped of overproduced instruments and emboldened by their cause, the two artists deliver fourteen incredible tracks. The East-meets-West experience features piano, percussion, strings, winds and tracks sung in both Hebrew and English. The lyrics speak of acceptance and unity, struggling to forge cultural divides.

Arie and Raichel have performed together at the Nobel Peace Prize Ceremony in Oslo as well as the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C. and New York City’s Museum of Jewish Heritage. They come to Anthology on July 13.

WED 7/13, 7:30pm SOLD OUT!
“Raichel’’s classical, melodic piano playing combines with Arie’s folk and gospel-inspired lyrics to strike a tender, emotional chord.”” –
