Noa Ben-Sadia

MA Researcher

Noa Ben-Sadia is a graduate student of Ethnomusicology at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, a music teacher and a musician (singer-songwriter). 

Her research in recent years has focused on African-American music from historiographic, cultural and musicological perspectives with a focus on voice and gender. She is currently writing her thesis under the supervision of Professor Ruth Hacohen and Dr. Louise Bethlehem on the solo and choral performance of Negro spirituals in socialist Israel of the 1950's, in the wake of the vocal aesthetics and political ideas of the African-American singer, actor and activist, Paul Robeson. These interests form the basis of her contribution to APARTHEID-STOPS.
