Carry the world. Hold the earth. Hold on to the ground. Hold on to your land. By partnering with Roger Waters, the former Pink Floyd frontman, for a track dedicated to all those who are, precisely, fighting for their land and, at the same time, wishing to pay homage to four teenagers killed while playing football on a beach in Gaza, The Trio Joubran wanted to mark our minds and managed to do so brilliantly. But if Samir, Wissam, and Adnan, all of whom were born in Nazareth, often persist on recalling their indelible link to Palestine, it would be unfair to remember them just for that. It would be to overlook the essential, namely the astonishing evocative force that emerges from the instrument of which they have become specialists, the oud. Three ouds, for as many brothers, as many virtuosos. Oriental lute for some, Arab guitar for others, regardless of definition: in the hands of these three musicians, the oud travels, flies, breathes, and with it all those who are exposed to it. After eight albums to their credit, film scores and endless awards, The Trio Joubran has nothing to prove. If not to themselves. With this in mind, they chose to add more strings to their... oud with a brand new album, The Long March, which they consider as a turning point, a new direction in their musical convictions. Don’t be surprised to hear a mix of keyboards, the piano, the flute and subtle arrangements of strings or vocals. We are indeed impatient to discover how these new frontiers will be gleefully interpreted on stage.
