Israel’s leading international recording and performing artist Noa (also known by her birth-name Achinoam Nini) and her long-time artistic partner and collaborator, the renowned guitarist, composer, and educator Gil Dor performed their first concert together in 1990. Now celebrating a 30-year journey that has allowed them to perform in front of millions of fans in 51 countries, the duo is bringing that celebration to dedicated audiences around the world with international tour dates from as far as Israel, Russia, and Latvia to multiple countries across Europe, and culminating with five U.S. tour dates in March slated for Boston, MA; Seattle, WA; Irvine, CA; New York, NY; and Kennett Square, PA. 

 

The tour will feature songs from Noa’s latest album Letters to Bach, which was executively produced by the legendary Quincy Jones and represents a creative correspondence that transcends space and time between Noa’s vocal/lyrical stylings and the music of iconic German composer Johann Sebastian Bach. The album is comprised of twelve pieces of instrumental music composed by Bach, for which Noa has written lyrics (in both English and Hebrew) that touch intimately and thoughtfully on subjects ranging from technology and religion to global warming, feminism, euthanasia, the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, and the trials of relationships in the age of social media. 

 

“I found in Bach’s ageless compositions an incredible platform for conveying very, very contemporary ideas,” reflects Noa. “The lyrics I wrote for them are not sung in a classically trained fashion, but rather something that could be described as musical theater-oriented with elements of jazz, scat, or even rapper-ish with spoken-word. All these things can be found in the way that these pieces are performed."

 

Noa’s long-standing musical collaborator, Gil Dor masterfully arranges the pieces for acoustic and classical guitar, managing to seamlessly synergize with Noa’s majestic voice and percussion playing while also managing to remain absolutely true to Bach’s original polyphony and form.  

 

“The fact that Quincy Jones became so enthusiastic about this album and wanted to be the executive producer is a huge compliment for us. He's been very supportive of our career for years and years.  I've done a lot of more pop-oriented projects, but of all projects, this is the one and he said, ‘I'm going to be the executive producer for this one,’ We are really proud of that.”

 

While The Letters to Bach project is highlighted as the heart of their live performances, Noa and Gil will also bring to the stage a sampling of their diverse and inspiring original repertoire from over the years. “On Tour, we do integrate Letters to Bach into the program as the spotlight but it’s not all Bach,” explains Noa. “We include a selection of our greatest hits with songs we've done over the years in both English and Hebrew. There's also almost always a song in Yemenite that I dedicate to my family, and then there's the whole Bach section at the heart of it, and somehow it all makes sense!”

 

Together, Noa and Gil have earned a reputation over the decades for putting on live performances that often rival the engineered perfection of the best studio recordings. Critics have marveled that, considering the complexity and the speed of the melodies, it is hard to believe that Noa’s live voice in concert often sounds exactly as, or batter than, on the recordings. Said one floored reviewer from Under The Radar Magazine, “The concert seemed to suggest that Bach himself composed for Noa and her voice, to begin with.”
