The New York based trio, led by ASCAP Award winning flutist and composer Hadar Noiberg, has had tremendous success at various festivals and performances globally. Hadar fuses styles seamlessly between jazz and world music, and is distinguishing herself as both innovative and highly skilled in the jazz and world music scenes nationally and internationally.
Hadar’s ensemble is a “Power Trio” – tight and full of groove and passion. The daring and unique instrumentation flute, double bass and drums allows sliding in and out of Jazz improvisation and Western harmonies with Middle Eastern and North African semitones. Bassist Haggai Cohen Milo and drummer Allison Miller form the trio with Hadar.
Being a jazz musician with a vast Classical background and experience in playing Cuban, Brazilian and Middle Eastern styles, Hadar brings all that to the table while also using effects and loops, both in her compositions and improvisations, creating her own distinctive voice.
Hadar has been a featured performer with acclaimed artists such as Yemen Blues, Dave Valentin, Anat Cohen, Omer Avital, Coco Mama, Alvester Garnett, Joel Frahm, Junior Rivera, Louis Kahn, Rufus Reid and many more.
In 2010 Hadar released her first album as bandleader, “Journey Back Home.” In the intervening years the Hadar Noiberg Trio has extensively toured internationally, and has been featured in major festivals and venues in Europe, the United States, Canada, Taiwan and Israel such as: Blue Note, WOMEX, Discover Jazz Festival, Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola, Babel Med Music, Roskilde Festival, “A” Trane, and Central Park SummerStage, to name a few.
Hadar’s trio was featured last April at Europe’s biggest jazz showcase event, JazzAhead, which takes place in Bremen, Germany. A reviewer from Das Neue Musikzietung Magaz wrote:
“The ‘magical flutist’ Hadar Noiberg and her trio captivated the audience … She formed her own original style through distinctive rhythms and melodies.”
Work on Hadar’s second album, “From the Ground Up,” has been completed, and it will be released September 2015 under US/European label Dot Time Records. The music is innovative and energetic – blending simple folky melodies with intense development, soloing and communication. With special guests clarinetist Anat Cohen and guitarist Yotam Silberstein, “From the Ground Up” is filled with passion, daring and musical virtuosity.
