Kamilya Jubran and Sarah Murcia at Au Fil Des Voix Festival

Kamilya Jubran (voice and oud); Sarah Murcia (double bass); After several collaborations over the years, Palestinian singer/oud player Kamilya Jubran and French bass player Sarah Murcia join their multifaceted talents in a new project entitled 'Nhaoul' ('Loom' in Arabic). A subtle dialogue between strings and poetry, leading to a common discourse, ideally suited to Kamilya's moving voice. Sarah is familiar with the quarter tones in oriental music while Kamilya is totally at home with the most complex rhythmical structures. On stage, they are accompanied by a string trio (cello, viola and violin) adding a sophisticated rhythmical element. The choice of texts and songs is equally interesting and includes Bedouin poetry from the Sinai and Negev deserts, poems by contemporay Arab writers (Hassan Najmi, Salman Masalha) and a magnificent song by the master of popular Egyption music from the beginning of the century, Sayed Darwich, one of Kamilya's main references. Kamilya and Sarah long-established musical friendship brings us nothing but delight. Recorded at 'Au Fil des Voix' in 2013 - Directed by Giuseppe De Vecchi - Duration: 56min (56 min)
