Both have roots in Yemen and sometimes sing in Hebrew, but Israeli (via the Bronx) singer/songwriter/percussionist Noa is no Ofra Haza; her exotic coloration derives more from Broadway than theMagreb. On the songs that strip away the show-bizzy flourishes, though, her voice is lucid and luminous. The singer appears with guitarist/collaborator Gil Dor at 8 p.m. at George Washington University’s Lisner Auditorium, 730 21st St. NW. $25-30. (202) 994-6800. (MJ)
