N.O.H.A - Noise Of Human Art


N.O.H.A. is characterized by energy-loaded grooves and its open-genre mixture of drum & bass and world music in a sound we like to call “Ethno-Bass”.

With several studio albums and years of touring experience under their belts, Noise of Human Art knows how to rock the party. Hits like Balkan Hot Step, Dinero, Tu Café and many others have brought the band to some of the biggest international festival stages.

When on stage, N.O.H.A. stands out as a living, breathing force of nature. The band radiates highly infectious positive energy flowing from the stage to the crowd, to which any audience at any number of festivals this year alone can attest.
