“Several worlds meet (in Noiberg’s music)… the warm, romantic sound and the precise counterpoint of European classical music; the thump and the controlled improvisational passion of American jazz and the colorful depth of Middle Eastern music. Compositionally Noiberg has an outstanding talent for catchy melodies.” – Süddeutsche Zeitung
ASCAP award winning flutist and composer, Hadar Noiberg, is pushing the boundaries of what is means to be a gay female musician and bandleader in today’s ever-changing world.
From Classical music to jazz to Brazilian choro and Middle Eastern Music, Hadar’s eclectic musical background and experience has led her to create her own style where she fuses all those influences seamlessly.
With her exceptional trio she has been touring internationally since 2010 in the US, Canada, Brazil, Europe, Taiwan and Israel. Now she is about to release her 3rd album as a bandleader. “Open Fields” derives from Hadar’s Israeli roots mixed to her worldwide influences to create her own innovative style and extremely melodic instrumental pieces Hadar calls “songs”. The album features Eduardo Belo on Double bass, Amir Bar-Akiva on the drums and special guest world renowned pianist, Chano Dominguez.
Dominguez and Noiberg also have a new duo project where they share their musical languages and craft a new way for the various musical traditions of the mediterranean to interact.
After working with such acclaimed artists such as Yemen Blues, Dave Valentin, Anat Cohen, Omer Avital and performing in venues and festivals as Blue Note, WOMEX, Discover Jazz Festival, Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola, Babel Med Music, Roskilde Festival, “A” Trane, Central Park SummerStage, to name a few, Noiberg sets out to create a new musical experience that is unique to her.
Hadar has come a long way since moving to NY at 21 and now she has made a name for herself in the Jazz and world music scenes in NY and internationally. Her artistry and spirit take the audience on a journey to their inner self and brings healing and joy.
“The ‘magical flutist’ Hadar Noiberg and her trio captivated the audience… She formed her own original style through distinctive rhythms and melodies”. –Das Nuue Musikzietung magazine
