Sensuous, bewitching, light and mellow, NOUN YA’s electro-acoustic compositions show the combined influences of traditional Eastern music and classical music, modern music and jazz.
On stage, they magically wield effects and samples in real time, creating the illusion that there are more than just the two of them. With their unbridled energy they arouse genuine emotion. Their repertoire is the expression of their freedom.
