About Noam Blat:
Noam Blat, a guitarist singer songwriter with a versatile and expressive voice.
Born and raised in Israel - a melting pot of musical traditions and cultures. He now resides on the mid north coast of N.S.W Australia.
Noam is strongly influenced by the different musical styles of his heritage.
His compositions are intricately played, colorful and deeply moving.
They range from heart opening songs, to dynamic grooves echoing the sounds of the middle east, Spain and India.
Noam writes and sings both in English and Hebrew and performs his original music along side Hebrew folk songs, traditional prayers and invocations.
Since the release of his debut album "The Wind", Noam has been performing in festivals and venues around the world always leaving audiences deeply touched by the journey they’ve taken.
Noam’s ability to bring his passion and vulnerability to the stage combined with his humour and generosity of spirit makes his performance a true heartfelt experience.
“Noam Blat is something else again, with roots reaching deep into Middle Eastern culture.
“A piercingly blue-eyed bloke with a winning smile, he seems genuinely imbued with some kind of spirit. He sings like he hails from heaven: in the register and with the caliber of Rufus Wainwright. He sings in Hebrew as well as English; a seamless fusion of the ancient, traditional and contemporary, while paying witting or unwitting homage to an even wider, wilder world of influences, from flamenco to Yiddish folk, klezmer and gypsy. Prayerful, sad, tender and touching, but with a primal rhythmic undertow that almost compels one to dance. There's magic here: in his anecdotes, imbued with disarming sense of humour (like the one about his brother hankering to get back to a wartorn part of Israel after a week or so with their mother), songs and charismatic capacity to connect with an audience. There's an intergenerational, non-denominational, secular and religious, multilingual universality about this young bloke. He has a way with an acoustic guitar too.”
