Noa's concert in Sofia (Bulgaria)
Israeli singing duo Mira Awad and Noa, who represented Israel in the 2009 Eurovision Song Contest in 2009, will be coming to Bulgaria to perform at Sofia's NDK Hall One on September 20 at 7.30pm.
The duo performed a song called There Must be Another Way, a piece interpreted as a plea for reconciliation between the two sides in the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.
The song won a place in the Eurovision final on May 16, and eventually finished in 16th place with 53 points
Bulgarian fans of the pair will be particularly thrilled because Mira Awad's mother is Bulgarian and she has referred to Bulgaria as "her second home".
Awad, an Arab-Israeli, is a full citizen of Israel, based in Tel Aviv, who says she feels "Palestinian by nationality" and "Israeli by citizenship". Awaḍ was born in 1975 to an Arab Christian father from the Galilee, a physician by profession, and a Bulgarian Christian mother. Aside from her singing career, Awad has also appeared on stage in the Israeli interpretation of My Fair Lady.
Known in Israel by her given name Achinoam Nini, Noa is Israel's leading international concert and recording artist. Born in Tel- Aviv in 1969, Noa lived in NYC from the age of two until her return to Israel alone at the age of 17. Her family is originally from Yemen.
