About Noa...

I am Noa and live with my husband in Hamburg, Germany.

Due to severe chronic illness, I am no longer able to work. After 20+ years of being mostly house and bedbound, I've finally started to recover. I am walking again and am gaining strength. I still have my rest periods, but am over the moon with what I got already.
When I became ill, I was studying to become a psychotherapist. Besides this I'm a semi professional musician/singer/songwriter.
While I was in school, I have studied church music and used to lead a children's choir and play the organ. To this day, I'm a bit obsessed with old church organs. My teacher taught me, how to tune different types of pipes and I spent alot if time inside old organs. I love the smell of old wood.

I love art, nature, animals, connecting with people.
I love music. Listening, singing, playing
Classical music, from old to modern; blues, folk, klezmer, jazz, alternative rock, ...

The message is the soul."
