Noa (Achinoam Nini) is Israel’s leading international singer/songwriter, having shared the stage with superstars such as Sting, Pat Metheny, Quincy Jones, Stevie Wonder, Andrea Bocelli and many more, and is Israel’s first Good Will Ambassador for FAO, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN. She was also given the honorary title of Cavalliera de la Republica Italiana by Italy’s former President Napolitano, and is the recipient of the Chrystal Award of the World Economic Forum, where she was also chosen as a Global Leader of Tomorrow.
Together with her longstanding collaborator Gil Dor, she has released over 15 albums which have sold millions worldwide. Noa was the first Jew to perform in the Vatican 15 years ago and has returned many times. She wrote lyrics to and recorded the hugely successful theme song for the Academy Award-winning film “La Vita è Bella”. Noa sings in six languages, has collaborated with Symphony Orchestras around the world, and performed in the world’s most prestigious venues, including the White House. Beyond her passionate commitment to music, Noa dedicates much of her time to promoting peace and dialogue between Israel and Palestine and to various social issues, volunteering extensively for organizations in these fields. Noa has collaborated with numerous artists in the Arab world, including Khaled from Algeria and Nabil Salameh from Lebanon, but most notably with Israeli /Palestinian artist Mira Awad, with whom she represented Israel in the 2009 Eurovision, singing before an audience of many millions in Arabic, English and Hebrew. Noa is active on the public board of the Um EL Fahem Muesum of Art, the Arava Desert Institute and the Polyphony Music project of Nazereth, all institutes where Jews and Arabs meet to share knowledge, music and art, connecting them on the highest and deepest level possible.
