Noa’s new musical project is entitled “Letters to Bach,” executively produced by Quincy Jones.
It is comprised of 12 pieces of instrumental music written by Johann Sebastian Bach for which Noa has written English and Hebrew lyrics, inspired by subjects as diverse as technology and religion, global warming and feminism, euthanasia, the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, and relationships in the age of social media. The arrangements for guitar were done by Noa’s long-standing musical collaborator Gil Dor, guitarist, composer, arranger and educator. The duo’s performances are surprising and brilliant, with Noa’s voice both soaring majestically and skipping playfully between the notes, intertwining perfectly with Gil’s guitar, illuminating Bach’s brilliant polyphony.
Noa and Gil bring to the stage a selection of their diverse and inspiring original repertoire, in English, Hebrew and Yemenite, accented by Noa’s exciting percussion playing. The project “Letters to Bach” is highlighted in the heart of the concert.
In this concert, Noa and Gil strive to break the binding walls of language, religion, genre, generation, and stigma to build a bridge of musical excellence, respect and joy, a place of curiosity, courage and hope….all under the auspices of the great super-connector, Johann Sebastian Bach.
