Idan Raichel intervewed by Al Jazeera's Riz Kahn

On March 14th, Israeli superstar Idan Raichel was featured in a 30-minute interview on the English-language version of Al Jazeera, the television network best-known for its coverage of issues related to the Middle East. Raichel sat down with famed reporter Riz Kahn for an in-depth conversation about his history as a successful recording artist and his thoughts on what his music represents in the local political context.

Kahn’s popular program, One on One is more a conversation than a news interview, profiling celebrities and newsmakers from around the globe, with a focus on their personal histories, defining moments and goals in life. Previous guests include His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Bob Geldof, Richard Branson, CBS veteran journalist Mike Wallace, Canadian rock star Bryan Adams, Bollywood actress Mallika Sherawat, former First Lady of Egypt Jehan Sedat and singer songwriter Angelique Kidjo, to name just a few.

The interview can be viewed in two sections on youtube through the following links:
