ARTISTIC MISSION:
to inspire, heal and empower

Born and raised in Bulgaria, NoomRa is proud of her Balkan roots but heavily influenced by the whole world and its cultures. This is especially noticeable in her music, which is not only versatile when it comes to genre, but also enfused with diverse influences in terms of melody and vocal techniques. NoomRa writes her songs in English, so that they are accessible for anyone, as she believes that her music contains universal messages. These messages are usually humanity-oriented, future-oriented and are very representative for her mindset and values, as well as personal path. Themes like self-exploration and expression, dealing with self-doubt and fear, transforming anger into constructive force, discovering one's own truth, diversifying society's opinions from one's personal perspective, being misunderstood and mistreated, being an outsider, embracing one's vulnerabilty, accepting and resolving pain, balancing one's feminine and masculine energy, discovering one's potenial and inner power and others are usually the ones that drive NoomRa's inspiration to incorporate all these complex topics into her songs and open a conversation about them. Another really important issue for her is women’s expression and representation, not only as female artists but also as human beings. The socially-accepted and anticipated image of a woman is no longer valid and it's NoomRa personal goal to challenge people's perception for what makes a woman worthy of attention and recogition.
She defines the opportunity to live in different socio-cultural circumstances (villages, small and big cities, different countries) as a privilege, which allowed her to grow as a person, reinvent herself multiple times and get to know a bit better the world we are living in and the joys and burdens one can experience. Endowed with huge empathy for the 'Human experience' (enhanced also by her humanitarian education), she chooses the mission to inspire, heal and empower people with her art and hopes that she will reach those who most need to hear her message. 

NoomRa = Moon + Ra
The name is a wordplay, which reassembles Nora M. in a way that represents the Moon and the Sun (Ra is the Egyptian deity of the sun).
NoomRa is about Yin and Yang, the light and the darkness, the strenght and the vulnerability, the hope and the anger, the dualities, the contrasts without which everything would be static.
