Preview: Noga Ritter & Everyday People LDN @ St. Mary’s Music Hall (London; Thursday 11th October 2018)


There are now cultural and musical collaborations where passionate musicians of diverse backgrounds, young refugees and asylum seekers come together at once. Where? Music Action International has a lot to do with this ever-transforming commitment. ‘Creative Re:Action for Peace’ is the charity’s motto, aiming to directly empower torture survivors and war refugees with the innate healing power of music.

Whilst the action of composing may benefit the wordy and aural expression of extreme feelings, actions like dancing and choir singing may help release and alleviate the enormous burdens of incredibly difficult experiences. Music Action International works on such themes across the UK, and St. Mary’s Music Hall hosts the event. One of the reasons you should watch out for Israeli singer/songwriter Noga Ritter is that you will find it invigorating (and reassuring) how one can disperse music in so many life-aspects and simultaneous independent projects of musicianship.

Workshop leader and facilitator at Music Action International, Live Music Now and Create, Noga Ritter has also been performing in London for many years now with her own band Vocal Global and other projects. Her music brings together West African grooves and diasporic mélanges of Afro-Brazilian hints re-elaborated in fresh jazz harmonies – Hebrew and English are lyrically explored.

On 11th October, the audience will witness two acts in musical collaboration. Initially, Everyday People LDN invites the audience to engage with teenage refugees’ traumatic experiences through the awareness and joy of multi-racial and mixed gender music making. There is an underlying burden of liberation and redemption in the Creative Re:Action, that Noga Ritter’s new 9-piece band is very likely to cart away in all savvy vests. Bringing together the cache of London’s contemporary music buffet, this new project enriches Noga’s original songs with the emotional resonance of eight more professional corps – launching the whole evening’s cause directly through substantial creativity and the wide-awakening innocent experience of live music.
