Award-winning Palestinian oud masters Le Trio Joubran return to the Barbican in February 2019 following their appearance at the Centre in May 2015. Here they will present new material from their upcoming sixth album The Long March (out on Cooking Vinyl on 12 Oct 2018). The new record features collaborations from poet Mahmoud Darwish and Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters.
Brothers Samir, Wissam and Adnan Joubran stem from a well-known family with rich artistic heritage: their father is one of the world’s most acclaimed oud makers and their mother is a muwashahat singer. The trio’s music not only pays homage to the oud – a four-thousand-year-old instrument – but also takes inspiration from jazz and flamenco. Le Trio Joubran has been touring the world for the past 15 years, captivating audiences through their virtuosic playing.
Produced by the Barbican in association with Marsm
