Box Set Marks Le Trio Joubran's First Decade



The Trio Joubran are perhaps Palestine’s best-known exponents of the oud, a traditional Arabic stringed instrument. Three brothers from a family of musicians and instrument-makers from Nazareth, the Joubrans celebrated their tenth anniversary playing together by releasing a luxurious box set, functionally titled The First Ten Years, featuring both back catalog and new material.

This collection celebrating their career over the past ten years, features their first albums: Randana and Majâz, À l'ombre des mots (In the Shadow of Words) with the voice of poet Mahmoud Darwish - an anthology with strong, symbolic meaning; music from the film Le Dernier Vol (The Last Flight) - an extraordinary collaboration with Chkrrr, and the Trio's latest and impressively mature album Asfâr with the voice of Dhafer Youssef and the well-known rhythm of ever-faithful percussionist, Youssef Hbeisch. A stunning DVD depicting the life of the Joubrans at the height of their art on stage and off is included in the collection.
