The Idan Raichel Project

While Weekend Edition does great music pieces, it's not often that we get the chance to document a band during a concert. But we did just that when Israeli music producer Idan Raichel invited fellow intern Jason Sparks and me to his concert at George Washington University's Lisner Auditorium in Washington D.C. in March. We were able to get some really great stage footage, sound and interviews of the band and some of its fans.

Watch our audio slideshow of the concert below. And don't miss Host Liane Hansen's conversation with Idan Raichel on today's show, where you can hear more music from his latest CD, called "Within My Walls."

Produced by Kathryn Dalrymple and Jason Sparks
