Idan Raichel Live at JUMP

It was just about a full house last week at JUMP (Jewish Urban Meeting Place) as they opened the doors to the new midtown location on Yonge, just south of Eglington. To kick off the launch of the new centre, following his performance at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre at Exhibition place, Motek productions had one of Israel's top artists Idan Raichel, roll in for an Intimate and Interactive sit down interview, surrounded by an audience of some seventy or so young professionals.

The evening's host was Notable TV journalist Julian Brass who in his monologue opening, spoke about how he first came to know of Idan and his project.

During the actual interview and accompanied by vocalist Maya Avraham, the personal side of the artist was shown with questions ranging from how he got his start, to who his favorite collaborator to date has been and what types of music and which artists have inspired him, plus those he travels with the most.

Each of the four melodious performances was rendered with pitch perfect sound. For anyone who could not make it last Monday here is just a small taste of Idan and Maya's music.
