From Tel Aviv, Israel, Hadar Noiberg, flutist, composer and arranger has established herself as a major force in the Cuban, Jazz and World music scenes. With a language that transcends her Middle Eastern roots, she fuses styles seamlessly, distinguishing her as both innovative and highly skilled. Hadar’s original material is being performed by her trio which has a daring and unique instrumentation: flute, double bass (Edward Perez) and drums/percussion (Ziv Ravitz) which allows sliding in and out of Jazz improvisation and Western harmonies with Middle Eastern and North African rhythms and semitones.
