Achinoam Nini (known also as NOA), Israeli born of Yemenite origin, raised in the US, currently resides in Israel with her husband and 3 children. She is Israel's leading international singer/songwriter, having shared the stage with superstars such as Sting and Stevie Wonder, and Israel's first Good Will Ambassador for FAO, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN. Together with her longstanding collaborator Gil Dor, she has released over 15 albums which have sold millions the world over. Noa was the first Jew to perform in the Vatican 15 years ago and has done so many times since. She dedicates much of her time to promoting peace and dialogue between Israel and Palestine and was the only leading Israeli artist to agree to perform in the historic peace rally where Yitzchak Rabin was murdered.
Noa recently made headlines when she refused to receive the ACUM music award alongside ultra-right-wing singer Ariel Zilber, due to his affiliation and support of Racist Political movements. Noa has collaborated with numerous artists in the Arab world, including Khaled from Algeria and Nabil Salameh from Lebanon, but most notably with an Israeli artist Mira Awad, with whom she represented Israel in the 2009 Eurovision, singing before and audience of many millions in Arabic, English and Hebrew.
This show will feature songs in English and Hebrew, including songs from her 2012 release "Israeli Songbook" and from her upcoming release "Love Medicine".
