The three brothers who constitute the Trio, now at the height of their maturity and knowledge, made AsFâr, their fifth album, with music composed as well as “experienced” by all three of them. For the discovery of other cultures cost them a lot of struggles as well as many joys.
The third CD/DVD album, from the August 2008 concert in Ramallah is an intense tribute to the late Palestinian poet Mahmoud Darwish with whom the Trio collaborated for more than twelve years.
The Joubran's Trio second opus, is the arabic translation of the word "metaphor": just like that rhetorical technique, the trio intended once more to carry its audience from one emotion to another. For this second album, the Trio brought in percussionist Yousef Hbeisch. A new international tour, made all the richer for his artistic contribution, is at the heart of their program for the 2007-2008 seasons. Between painful, ecstasy and somptuous silence, the Trio's overwhelming stage performances are both precise and overflowing with emotions that take their audience's breath away. This new album reveals the maturity of a trio that took flight with "Randana", and "Majâz" whose is an invitation to travel.
United here for their first album, the Joubran brothers' music is thrilling and mournful all at once. Interspersed with moments of silence, their melodies tell of sadness and hope and, above all, of the desire to give voice to Palestine.
