Noga Ritter 9-piece band LIVE showreel video is OUT!

Check out the new video capturing the ecstatic vibes at Noga Ritter’s show at St. Marys Music Hall, London October 2018. From Rhythm Passport’s review of the show:”Noga Ritter’s 9-piece band showcases the craftwork of boundary pushing artists within London's fusion music scene. Through Afro driven grooves and jazz interpretations, the collective rework and fuse Noga's original material, defying music genres. With a big band and an undeniable vocal conviction, Noga’s estatic stage performance tempts audiences to give their bodies to a unifying diasporic journey in dance and rhythm.”

Performing on Senegalese national TV with Ibnou Annas Gueye

Didn’t expect to sing on RDV Sénégal (Senegal national TV) but I defiantly didn’t expect to dance mbalax , beat-box for a rapper and talk in my broken French/Wolof/English about Israel/ Palestine on the show . Though defiantly the best part was performing my songs and Annas’s song with the talented Ibnou Annas Gueye ! Looking forward for my next concert in Senegal ! stay tuned, more info soon!
