Le Trio Joubran are the worthy inheritors of a rich family tradition. For the Joubrans, music is a family affair. The trio's parents, Hatem Mbadda Joubran, stringed-instrument maker emeritus known throughout the Arab world, and Ibtisam Hanna Joubran, a singer, both come from families where music is transmitted from generation to generation. Be it the next logical step, or the magic of destiny, Samir pulls Wissam and then Adnan along in his footsteps. The Joubran Trio stands on the mutual understanding of three brothers who share a common and limitless love for the ud'. The trio's repertory, made up of original creations and magnificent improvisations, takes root in their knowledge of the imposing culture of traditional maqâms and their subtle interpretations.
