THE NOHA

Javed, Zahir and Sharik Hussain—the founders of The Noha, which means beauty and gracy—are the modern face of a forceful and undeniable musical lineage that goes back at least eight generations. Rooted in the Jaipur Gharana, the Noha, like all of Rajasthan, is known for soulful, melodious music. Magnifying the Rajasthan’s renown folk music, The Noha represents an Indo-western fusion of powerful percussion instruments with inspired and evocative vocals, and invites audiences to a journey of artistic exploration.

THE FLAVOUR

Rajasthani Folk Music: Rajasthan is a land of vivid colors, known for music that moves the soul and touches the spirit. Resting on this proud Rajasthni tradition, the Noha mesmerizes audience with soulful song and rhythmic instrumental music.

Indo-Western Fusion: To a foundation that rests proudly on Rajasthan’s renown folk music, the Noha adds in the inspired songs of Sufi poets, including Qawwali and Ghazal, with Western music that represents the best in modern creativity.

Ghazal: Understood as a poetic expression of both the pain of loss and the beauty of love in spite of that pain, Ghazals require feeling and emotion in addition to a classically trained voice. The Noha’s lead vocalist captures and evokes such feeling.

Instrumental Fusion: Joining together classical instruments such as sitar, table, and jal tarang with western instruments like drums and guitar, the Noha unites the best of two worlds in the international language of music.

Rock: Itself heavily influenced by rhythm and blues, country and folk music, and jazz and classical traditions, Rock is the young generation’s favorite music. The Noha brings its unique twist to rock music by fusing together strands of traditional Rajasthani folk music, Western instrumental music, original composition, and vocals.
