NOA (Nomadische Onaantastbare Alliantie)
|Info:||NOA or Nomadische Onaantastbare Alliantie, which means
Nomadic Untouchable Alliance concists of R-I-V and Mic
Joshua. R-I-V is the artist Rivelino Rigters. Mic Joshua is
Marc Joshua de l'Isle. Both have already made independant
releases in the Dutch music scene. Mic Joshua would leave
NOA as a performing member in August 2006. |
With the NOA crew R-I-V wants to build an ark in the music
scene to show a different kind of hip hop culture, less
criminal and sexual, to the youth. For him rap is more about
expressing yourself and being positive.
NOA would further like to develop into a changing collective
of artists. Another goal is to make a NOA foundation to
release albums of artists with the same positive message.
Besides rap the crew visited schools during a tour for World
Vision in 2006. The track "Maak Een Verschil’ (editor: Make
a difference) is chosen for the campaign "Zip Your Lip"
from World Vision. Part of Zip Your Lip is the sponsoring
of young people, who will not eat for 24 hours. With this
money the fight against aids and hunger is financed in Third
Closer to home NOA is using their Loud Foundation to reach
out to the youth from Amsterdam west. R-I-V wants to help
them discover their talents through music and dance
activities to show a different way of living.
He knows from experience, selling drugs, breaking in and
doing time in prison, that a lot of negative behaviour among
teenagers comes from "acting tough for your peers",
"wanting to have the best in clothing" and "trying to be
one of the boys".
Mic Joshua left NOA as an active performing member in August
2006. He felt hip hop became too much of an idol in his
life. His new role within NOA will be as a composer and to
be part of the creative process concerning the repertoire of
NOA was nominated in the category of Best Hiphop/R&B act for

show took place on Saturday December 16th, 2006. Seven FM
is a Dutch christian radio station.
