THE HADAR NOIBERG TRIO
Who would have thought that music by a flute, bass and drums trio could be so colorful? So diverse and different and so full of drive and emotion? Hadar and her musicians are pushed to find other ways of expression and communication and to go beyond the boundaries of their instruments- the flute becomes the harmonic and rhythmic instrument, the double bass becomes an equal melodic instrument and the drums wrap it all up with an array of sounds and earthy grooves. The album is also colored by the touching playing of the world renowned pianist Chano Dominguez as a special guest.
Hadar’s music takes you by surprise- it takes you on a journey of excitement and longing, at times intense and then so clear and simple.
Open Fields is an album of beautiful songs; of powerful heartfelt melodies with unadulterated freedom.
