In a symphony of R&B and soul, two of Norway’s distinguished voices, Numa Edema and Noora Noor, unite to serenade us with the soulful single, For You. Echoing memories of Noora’s velvety vocals on Numa’s previous single, Coming Home, this collaboration is a sweet testament to the soulful synergy they create.
It’s not an overstatement to declare Numa Edema and Noora Noor as the King and Queen of Norwegian soul. Both artists embody soul music’s historic melodic essence – warm, heartfelt, and deeply emotional. In the early days of the Scandinavian soul scene, Noora Noor led the way alongside a few others in creating the idea of soul music in Norway. Today, the Norwegian soul movement flourishes with renowned bands and artists like Fieh, D’Sound and Bernhoft, garnering international acclaim.
In recent weeks, Noora Noor delighted soul aficionados with the announcement and release of her latest single, Face Another Day.
For You reunites Numa and Noora, creating a soul gem inspired by legends like Curtis Mayfield, Diana Ross, Marvin Gaye, and Tammi Wynette. Like strawberries and cream, their voices harmonise seamlessly. Numa Edema’s vintage soul, infused with contemporary elements and grand arrangements, evokes timeless quality and rich hi-fi sound. Whenever I play this, I smile because I love vocal interludes (I cannot be the only one!) and this one is particularly charming.
For You offers a tantalising preview of Numa Edema’s upcoming album, ‘Soul out of Oslo,’ promising an unforgettable journey back into soul music’s soul.
