NOGA EREZ [IL]

Saturday 21:15 MOON STAGE

Nogy Erez raps. She sings. She plays several instruments. She’s been in a number of bands (most often on keyboards, as a percussionist, or a singer). She even has a degree in composition from the Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance. This 29 year-old from Tel Aviv lives for music and you can now catch her rising star at Metronome Festival Prague. She began with jazz and then moved on to electronica, hip hop, and R´n´B.

Her first single Toy was released to a rave review form The New York Times, which pointed out the Middle Eastern influences and its exceptional dynamism. Apple chose her song Dance While You Shoot to promote its streaming services, which was followed by the release of her debut album dubbed Off the Radar. Critics excitedly compared Nogy Erez to Björk, Flying Lotus, and Kendrick Lamar. This means leading international festivals such as Primavera Sound, SXSW, Roskilde, and MELT! – as well as Meronome – can boast of another exceptional act.
