Save the Date for Boulder’s Yom Ha’atzmaut Concert

For 75 years, Jewish communities across the world have celebrated Israel’s triumphs and harrowing challenges. To mark Israel’s 76th birthday during this time of acute adversity, the Boulder Jewish Community will come together on Wednesday, May 15th at the historic Boulder Theater in Downtown Boulder to rejoice in overcoming adversity to build the State,  even as we mourn our losses.  Tickets are on sale now, with special pricing levels for students, sponsors, and general admission.   Noa will be joined by Gil Dor and Special Guest Grammy Winning Pianist Ruslan Sirota.

Achinoam Nini, commonly known as Noa, is a celebrated Israeli singer-songwriter with a captivating voice and a deep emotional resonance in her music. Renowned for her powerful performances and poignant lyrics, she has garnered international acclaim for her ability to blend various musical genres, including pop, folk, jazz, and Middle Eastern influences, into a harmonious and unique sound. 

Nini’s vocal range is striking, characterized by its clarity, warmth, and versatility. She has an extraordinary ability to convey a wide range of emotions through her singing, from vulnerability to strength, from longing to joy. Her performances are often marked by an intimate connection with her audience, drawing listeners in with her sincerity and authenticity.

Beyond her vocal talents, Nini is also a skilled songwriter, crafting lyrics that reflect her personal experiences, her cultural heritage, and her commitment to social justice and peace. She has used her platform to advocate for causes close to her heart, including coexistence between Israelis and Palestinians, environmental conservation, and women’s rights.

In addition to her solo career, Nini has collaborated with numerous renowned artists from around the world, further expanding her musical horizons and reaching new audiences. Her collaborations showcase her ability to adapt to different styles and cultures while maintaining her distinctive voice and artistic integrity.

A longtime political activist and advocate for dialogue and coexistence, Noa will remind us, as she did when performing with Palestinian singer Mira Awad at Eurovision 2009, that even in these dark days, “there must be another way.”
