Israel born singer-songwriter Noga Ritter and her trio bring their genre-blending music to Manchester for the first time, fusing Hebrew Jazz with global grooves for an electric and soulful musical experience.

In her eclectic music and performance Noga brings back Hebrew to its original nomad context, mixing influences from Jazz, her upbringing in Israel and diverse work in West-Africa and London. Her shows are electric and unique, full of improvisation and interaction between the musicians and with the audience.

She will be joined by Tomer Eldor on Piano (Israel) and Giuliano Osella on percussion (Italy). Be ready to be transmitted by her soulful music, and taken on a journey through her sincere lyrics and irresistible grooves! There will be a chance for everyone to join in, sing, dance and celebrate!
