New York Jazz Session # 2: Hadar Noiberg with Chipin & Kaiya Jazz Quartet

JAZZ FANS DON’T MISS THIS! :bravo: :bravo: :bravo:

Hadar Noiberg
Since arriving in NYC at age 21, flutist, composer and arranger HADAR NOIBERG 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.

Growing up in Israel with its eclectic musical culture, Hadar was surrounded by various styles of music that are a part of the Israeli melting pot: Middle Eastern, Eastern European, Yemenite and Moroccan music, to name only a few. Now she infuses her own compositions with those influences, sliding in and out of Jazz improvisation and Western harmonic structure with Middle Eastern rhythms and semitones.

Hadar’s new sophomore CD, Journey Back Home, is also a journey of the flute as a lead instrument. She explains: “The flute in Western improvised music has always been an instrument that was either used by doublers or was not considered a serious main instrument. In the Eastern and Middle Eastern musical traditions the flute, the Middle Eastern ney or the Indian bansuri are primal and influential instruments that hold the deep soul of the music. I want to bring that depth and richness into my music, which is influenced by both West and East, and feature the flute as a strong leading instrument.”

Hadar has been a featured performer with acclaimed artists such as Yemen Blues, Dave Valentin, Anat Cohen, Omer Avital, Coco Mama, Alvester Garnett, Joel Frahm, Junior Rivera, Louis Kahn, Rufus Reid and many more. She currently performs and tours nationally and internationally, having already showcased in such venues and festivals as Blue Note (NY), WOMEX, Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola, Babel Med Music, Central Park SummerStage, Iridium Jazz Club, Jazz Standard, Sweet Rhythm, Small’s Jazz Club, Merkin Concert Hall, The 55 Bar, Creole Blues Festival, Michigan Womyn’s Music Festival, Midsummer Night Swing, Roskilde Festival, Nessiah Festival, among others.
