Oman prepares for magical oud music as Palestinian ensemble Le Trio Joubran set to perform

The Royal Opera House Muscat (ROHM) in Oman is set to host two special evenings of oud music as celebrated Palestinian ensemble Le Trio Joubran is expected to hold a couple of concerts in the near future – on February 2 and 3.

Founded by three brothers, Samir, Wissam and Adnan, Le Trio Joubran is an oud trio playing traditional Palestinian music. The group is originally from the city of Nazareth, now dividing their time between Nazareth, Ramallah and Paris, reported Oman Moments.

Le Trio Joubran concerts promise magical evenings

The Joubran brothers come from a prominent family holding on to a rich artistic heritage. They are notably famous for their collaborations with the great poet and author, the late Mahmoud Darwish – regarded as Palestine’s national poet.

Mahmoud Darwish received numerous awards for his creations, including the Palestinian Declaration of Independence. He chose Le Trio Joubran to give a musical voice to his poems and would not work with any other musicians, as per the Times of Oman.

The Joubran brothers are fourth-generation oud artists, exhibiting a rare skill and connection to the ancient instrument. Their artistry carries a noble message of Palestinian identity to listeners from across the globe.

Le Trio Joubran has already received multiple accolades for their work, as they continue to represent the Arab and Palestinian identities through their melodious oud music. Their upcoming concerts promise magical evenings you should not miss.
