  • 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.
