Noa's concert in Goa (India)
If the days are packed with spirited conversations, the nights will come alive with extraordinary voices, talented musicians, sensual sounds. With a lineup that includes celebrated divas from Israel to one of Pakistan’s most revered sufi minstrels to a rousing Bollywood superstar, India's most skilled pianist and Goa’s own famed rockstar, prepare for musical nirvana.
She’s performed for the Pope, Yasser Arafat and Bill Clinton; at Carnegie Hall in NYC and the Colosseum in Rome; alongside the likes of Ray Charles, Sting, Bono, Carlos Santana, Stevie Wonder and Alanis Morissette. She has shared stage space with everyone from Oprah Winfrey and Angelina Jolie to Steven Spielberg and Gerard Depardieu. As Israel’s leading international music artiste, and a vociferous champion of peace, Noa combines influences from across the musical spectrum—Leonard Cohen, Joni Mitchell and Paul Simon, among others. What’s remarkable, though, is how these sensibilities fuse with her distinct Yemenite roots and the jazz, classical and rock influences of her longtime music partner, Gil Dor, to create a sound unparalleled anywhere in the world of music.
