The Idan Raichel Project

The Idan Raichel Project's album, Quarter to Six, was released in 2013. There are guest appearances by Portuguese fado star Ana Moura, Palestinian-Israeli singer Mira Awad, German counter-tenor Andreas Scholl, Colombia's Marta Gómez, Vieux Farka Touré and some of Israel's up-and-coming artists.[17] Quarter to Six reached triple-platinum sales status in Israel, selling over 116,000 copies.[8]

The Project played at a private concert for President Barack Obama during his visit to Israel in March. Raichel was invited by pop star Alicia Keys to perform a duet with her on stage at the Nokia Stadium in Tel Aviv. One month later, Raichel shared the stage with Patrick Bruel. At the end of the Jewish year in September, Pnai Plus, an Israeli entertainment magazine, voted Idan Raichel “Man of the Year”. The song “Ba'Layla (At Night)” was voted “Song of the Year”. Raichel was also named “Musician of the Year” in 2013 and 2014 by Galgalatz radio station. The Idan Raichel Project placed no.1 in Media Forest's chart of “The Most Broadcast Group” in Israel for 2013 and 2014, as well as “Group of the Year” in various media charts for 2014.
