Noa, singer and composer of Yemeni origins who was born in Israel and brought up in New York, is coming to the Auditorio de Tenerife on Saturday the 18th. The concert to present her new work, Letters to Bach, starts at 9:00 pm. The album includes twelve pieces of instrumental music written by Johann Sebastian Bach with lyrics in English and Hebrew by Noa.

In addition to singing she will also play percussion and will be accompanied by Gil Dor’s guitar and voice, Gadi Seri, percussion and vocals, and Or Lubianiker’s bass. The lyrics of Noa’s new project, produced by Quincy Jones, are inspired by such different topics as technology and religion, global warming and feminism, euthanasia, the Palestine-Israeli conflict+ and relationships in the age of social media.

The guitar arrangements are by Noa’s long-time collaborator, Gil Dor, guitarist, composer, arranger and educator. Noa and Gil Dor strive to break language, gender and generational barriers as well as stigma in order to build a bridge of musical excellence towards respect and joy, a place for curiosity, courage and hope. It is all done under the auspices of the great super-connector, Johann Sebastian Bach.

Noa is an internationally renowned artist who has performed in the most prestigious theatres in the world, including many performances at the Vatican for the three Popes, the White House, the Carnegie Hall, the Lincoln Center and the top venues in Europe.

She has been backed and produced by Pat Metheny and Quincy Jones and has shared the stage with Stevie Wonder, Sting and Andrea Bocelli, among many others. She is Commander of the Order of Merit of the Italian Republic, UN Goodwill Ambassador, Global Leader of Tomorrow, and has received countless awards for her art and her commitment to peace between Israelis and Palestinians.

Tickets can be purchased at Auditorio de Tenerife box office from 10:00 am to 7:30 pm Monday to Saturday, except holidays; via the website or calling 902 317 327.
