  • 23/02/2024Noga Ritter präsentiert ihr Album „Ima“ in Deutschland
    Die in London lebende Singer-Songwriterin verbindet in ihrer Musik hebräischen Jazz mit globalen Grooves. In ihren Liedern, die sie sowohl auf Hebräisch als auch auf Englisch singt, verwebt sie intime und persönliche Geschichten zu einer fesselnden Erzählung über soziale und globale Themen. Ihre Darbietungen, ob in reduzierter Form oder mit kompletter Band, sind leidenschaftlich und energiegeladen, ziehen das Publikum in ihren Bann und lassen es unweigerlich zum Rhythmus ihrer Musik bewegen. Auf ihrem neuen Album „Ima“ bringt Noga Ritter die hebräische Sprache in ihren ursprünglichen nomadischen Kontext und spürt Einflüssen aus ihrer Kindheit, ihren Reisen und zahlreichen Begegnungen nach. Aufsteigende Soli über Gnawa-Grooves, jüdische Melodien, die von senegalesischen Sabar-Trommeln begleitet werden, und glückselige Improvisationen neben subtilen israelischen Jazz-Piano-Feinheiten sind nur einige der Farbtupfer, mit denen sie ihre musikalischen Geschichten auf diesem bemerkenswerten Album malt. ...more
