Israel’s most famous singer is back with a new album and a rare London concert.
Seventeen years into her career as Israel’s best- known musical export, Achinoam Nini (aka Noa) is showing no signs of slowing down. To date, she has sung for the Pope at the Vatican, for President Clinton at the White House, toured with Sting, witnessed first-hand the assassination of Yitzhak Rabin, and released roughly a dozen albums, all featuring her trademark Joni-Mitchell-in-Tel-Aviv songwriting style. And now comes her latest offering, Genes and Jeans.
