Internationally-acclaimed Israeli singer Noa lends her unparalleled vocal capacity to the ageless compositions of Bach with U.S. with tour dates in March

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.
