Howard Assembly Room

Friday 5th June 2015 7:45pm

A rare opportunity to catch the pre-eminent Palestinian oud trio, formed by three brothers – Samir, Wissam Adnan Joubran – perform with master percussionist Youssef Hbeisch. The Joubran brothers come from a family steeped in Palestine’s rich musical history. Their father, Hatem Mbadda Joubran, is a great oud maker, and their mother, Ibtisam Hanna Joubran, is an acclaimed singer.

a style that brings a new dimension to the traditional Arabic lute, thanks to the almost intuitive way they work together, and the emotional range of their improvisations. The Guardian

The brothers have a glittering international career. Their repertoire pays homage to their 4,000-year old instrument and takes inspiration from jazz and flamenco. Only hearing is believing these rich, subtle melodies and magnificent improvisations.

Please note the time indicated is the actual start of the performance. Doors to the event will open approximately 15 minutes before.
