(EJNews) – On Thursday November 10, 2016, at 7 pm renowned Israeli singer Noa will be performing in Calgary at a special concert event co-hosted by Calgary’s Temple B’nai Tikvah and David Lyons. She will be performing with master guitarist Gil Dor.
Known in Israel by her given name Achinoam Nini, Noa is Israel’s leading international concert and recording artist. Born in Tel- Aviv in 1969, Noa lived in NYC from age 2 until her return to Israel alone at the age of 17. Her family is originally from Yemen. After serving the mandatory two years in the Israeli Army in a military entertainment unit Noa studied music at the Rimon School where she met her long-time partner and collaborator Gil Dor.
Her strongest influences come from the singer-songwriters of the 60s, like Paul Simon, Joni Mitchell and Leonard Cohen. These musical and lyrical sensibilities, combined with Noa’s Yemenite roots and Gil Dor’s strong background in Jazz, Classical and Rock, have created Noa and Gil’s unique sound, manifested in hundreds of songs that they have written and performed together. Noa plays percussion, guitar and piano. She is married to Dr. Asher Barak, they have three children and live in Israel.
This multi-instrumentalist singer songwriter has shared stages with such international musical luminaries as Sting, Pat Metheny, Quincy Jones, Stevie Wonder, Andrea Bocelli. Noa is also Israel’s first Good-Will Ambassador for the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization.
This promises to be an unforgettable evening of soaring vocals, transformative melodies and technical prowess. Noa and Gil’s performances are legendary and unforgettable; their Calgary appearance will be no exception.
