Idan Raichel and India Arie collaborate on new album

If you've ever listened to popular Israeli tunes, you've probably heard at least a couple of songs by the dreadlocked musical genius Idan Raichel.

Raichel is known for his band's eclectic cultural mix, bringing together Ethiopian, Yemenite, Israeli and South American singers to create a unique sound. Two years ago, he met India Arie, the Grammy Award-winning soulful American singer, and the two hit it off immediately.

Since then, they've been collaborating on an album called Open Door, which, after some delays, is now set to be released this coming March. Just one more thing to look forward to in the new year!

For a taste of what the duo has to offer, check out the video below of their song Gift of Acceptance, which they performed at the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony in Oslo, Norway last year.
