2019 release. For 15 years, Idan Raichel has released records under his own name, with his group The Idan Raichel Project, and with The Touré-Raichel Collective, his duo with Malian guitarist Vieux Farka Touré. As one of the most popular and beloved artists in the history of Israeli music, and through his collaborations with artists from around the world, Raichel has also become a global icon.

It also returns to the eternal themes that have long been at the core of his work, reflecting a rediscovery of his original inspirations. "We always want to evolve and search for new things," reflects Idan, "Sometimes you need to travel far away just to come back to the beginning." Along with guest musicians from Japan, Bulgaria, Ethiopia, Cuba and India, And If You Will Come to Me features duets with African guitar wizard Bombino, Cuban GRAMMY nominee Danay Suarez, Israeli stars Berry Sakharof and Zehava Ben, and a special new studio track with the reunited Idan Raichel Project.

His international tour begins in March 2019 and will see him performing in the USA, the UK, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Austria, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, Sweden and more.
