Noa proud to partner with the FAO

I am proud to partner with the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations to deliver the important message of “food for all” to people all over the world”.

International recording artist Achinoam Nini Barak, known simply as Noa, is a singer whose work reflects multiple influences with roots both in the West and in the Middle East and in popular and classical music. Born in Israel from Yemeni roots, Noa moved to the United States as a baby and grew up in New York. She returned to Israel at the age of 17. She has collaborated with musicians from around the world, among them Khaled, Sting, Donovan, Stevie Wonder, Zucchero and Santana. Noa -- whose real name, Achinoam, means “sister of peace” -- has raised her voice many times for peace and solidarity and feels, as she says, a “citizen of the world”. For Noa, only music stands a fighting chance of breaking cultural barriers, as it has a universal appeal that no other language possesses. Noa was appointed FAO Ambassador on 16 October 2003. Since her appointment, Noa has been extremely active in support of FAO giving interviews about FAO activities to international media and speaking about her role during all of her concerts.
