Israel: Voices From The Desert

Series Website »
Episode Guide »
Host Jacob Edgar travels to Israel to attend a once-in-a-lifetime concert of The Idan Raichel Project at the foot of the magnificent "Solomon's Pillars", a natural rock formation in the Negev Desert near the Red Sea resort city of Eilat. Idan Raichel, an internationally renowned star of the Israeli music scene, serves as his guide. At the technical rehearsals and sound check for the desert concert, Jacob meets the artists featured on stage. Idan performs with Cape Verdean singer Mayra Andrade on the edge of a stunning cliff. Ravid Kahalani performs in an unplugged session with members of his side project Yemen Blues and talks about the unique history and music of the Yemenite community. Cabra Casey, another lead voice in the Idan Raichel Project, introduces the fascinating story of Israel's Ethiopian immigrants. He also meets Palestinian-Israeli singer and television actress Mira Awad, who has recorded with Idan Raichel. She reflects on how artistic collaboration can lead to a hopeful future for Israel and the region. Then, Jacob interviews Idan while floating in the salty waters of the Dead Sea. Next, Idan and Jacob travel to Jerusalem for a visit to the Wailing Wall and a magnificent private home overlooking the Old City. The episode culminates with a song featuring the full project from the live concert in the desert.
