what people are saying...

Noel is best known for his renditions of popular Portuguese covers and I’m a big fan of his renditions of Portuguese Contemporary Pop music. He is one of few musicians that has the ability to take an existing popular song and make it his own, but at the same time, do justice to the song as the original artist intended.”

Eu tive o privilégio de ouvir o Noel Gama cantar em português uma das suas composições e fiquei sua fã! Foi no programa cultural que celebrou o “Dia de Damão” no dia 2 de Fevereiro de 2012 e toda a iniciativa foi extraordinariamente organizada a nível mundial pelo próprio Noel! A sua actuação foi um êxito e todo o público adorou ouvi-lo cantar em português sobre as saudades da terra onde nasceu. Espero poder ouvir brevemente mais música da sua autoria e desejo que continue o magnífico trabalho que tem vindo a realizar em prol da música e da cultura Damanenses!”

I have always been fascinated with the Portuguese language but when I heard Noel sing in Portuguese, I was mesmerized by the songs and his melodious voice. I never knew Portuguese music could be so delightful until I heard Noel’s version of popular Portuguese songs. He not only has a rich voice – the crystal-clear words seem to flow out of his lips as effortlessly as in speech.”

Noel, muitos parabéns pelo sucesso da tua apresentação musical no Instituto Camões em Nova Delhi. Foi um justo e merecido prémio para a forma persistente e coerente como tens defendido a especificidade da cultura Damanense e, também, a herança cultural portuguesa em Damão. Naturalmente, espero que outras oportunidades surjam.”

Conheci o Noel Gama, numa visita oficial, enquanto Dirigente Associativo Nacional. O Noel é por demais um entusiasta das tradições portuguesas, da musica portuguesa e da língua de Camões. Para os mais incautos, o Noel Gama dedica muito do seu pouco tempo de ócio á escrita e á musica.”

Noel sings Portuguese songs awesomely, making his concerts very memorable! And besides the music, he also has got a very good knowledge of sound reinforcement, always making sure that he gets the best sound system for that clean signature sound he is known for.”

I am a great fan of Noel’s, having attended many of his performances at different places and events. He has his own unique style and silky voice – I mean, no copy cat! Noel, thank you very much for giving me such wonderful musical memories. You are a fab musician and a wonderful person.”

Noel, as I know him, is a musician at heart first and then an HR person. He loves his guitar as much as his gadgets! No wonder he has been a One Man Band to thrill many an audience! I remember him once singing an emotional song (which he had himself written and composed) to an audience of over 1000, with just a single guitar in his hands for accompaniment – the crowd was spellbound!”

— Prasanna Joshi General Manager - Lagu Bandhu 🇮🇳

I do not know even the A-B-C of Western music but Noel’s music touched me so much that I’d sway my head, eyes closed, in appreciation and enjoyment. Such was the melody of his music and he in turn appreciated my typical South Indian invocation of the Lord. In short, music is divine, East or West!”

— Varada Prasad 🇮🇳

I am privileged to hear Mr. Noel Gama play. I find that his music brings out the pathos in me and at the same time his music is vibrant. It wakes you up, makes you sit up and take notice. I wish he continues to play more frequently and for long. I wish him well.”
