Achinoam Nini, the popular Israeli singer known as Noa, hosted a master class at the 2011 Speaking Arts conference in Jerusalem last week where Israeli and Palestinian artists come together to learn and perform. 

In an interview with ynet.com, Nini celebrated the converging of cultures.

“It doesn’t happen enough,” [Nini, who is] known by her professional name Noa, said. “Not just in Israel but in the world too. It’s very hard to hold such events despite the fact that we are artists and that such connections should hover over everything. But you know how it is – many times politics interferes in people’s considerations, both each person’s politics and the political opinions of the macro and micro groups, and then things stop.”
