In 2003, an unusual song aired on Israeli radio. With its haunting chorus in the Ethiopian language of Amharic and a global fusion sound, "Bo'ee" became an instant crossover hit that catapulted The Idan Raichel Project to the top of Israel's pop charts. The song turned a young dreadlocked keyboardist and producer into a household name in his native land. Soon, The Idan Raichel Project became known around the world for its cross–cultural collaborations. Since the release of their first international album, The Idan Raichel Project has represented a hope that artistic collaboration can break down barriers between different backgrounds and beliefs. Idan Raichel, the architect of this unique project, is a keyboardist, producer, and composer.

To date over 95 different singers aged 16 to 91 years old from dozens of different countries and cultural backgrounds have participated in the Project's recordings or performances.
