Oren Lavie, who has been busy in Tel Aviv working on a new album, traveled to Italy on November 3 to perform on “Sostiene Bollani”, the highly-regarded music program airing on Italian public broadcast channel RAI3, hosted by classical pianist Stefano Bollani. Oren played his song “The Man Who Isn’t There”, accompanied by the RAI National Symphony Orchestra. The program has an average viewership of over 580,000 each week.
