“Brilliant, fantastic, outstanding… her ballads get under your skin.”
-Allgemeine Zeitung DE
For over 10 years Israeli-born, Amsterdam-based Noam Vazana has brought a breath of fresh air into the Jazz and World landscapes. Her daring choices, incorporating vocals, piano and trombone simultaneously in her live show are taking her cross over to a deeper level. Often compared to the most powerful women that came before her, including Liz Wright, Nina Simone and Tori Amos, Vazana has been featured on the most prestigious jazz and world music festivals in Europe and Israel. Noam also leads a Sephardic music project, from which she will be performing some songs, joined by Vancouver’s Israeli guitar maestro and composer, Itamar Erez. Itamar's music holds a depth and sensitivity that touches listeners deeply; It blends the delicateness of Middle Eastern music, the freedom found in Jazz and the passion of Flamenco, creating a unique sound all his own.
