His father, Hatem Joubran, a luthier (oud maker) his mother, Ibtisam, along with his sister Suha are all talented singers in their own respect. At the age of 18 Adnan joined his two elder brothers, the Oud players, Samir and Wissam Joubran, to form the first oud trio in the world, known today as Le Trio Joubran, whose debut performance was in 2004 at Luxembourg Gardens, Paris.
Since this debut performance, Adnan has travelled the world performing in various renown festivals, theaters and music halls. At the age of 23 he perfomed at the prestigious Carnegie Hall (NYC) and at 27, Olympia (Paris), passing by Radio City Hall (NYC), Salle Pleyel (Paris) and Theatre de Champs Elysees (Paris), to name a few of the many infamous music halls they have played in around the world.

Adnan has also featured as a guest for Ibrahim Maalouf and Rodrigo & Gabriela and created the show Eko Du Oud with the French juggler Vincent Berhaut.
After 10 years of Parisian life, Adnan has created his own musical identity alongside his ongoing project with the Trio. Whilst respecting the traditional way of playing the oud he has followed his passion desire to propose something different and new. With these experiences and challenges, Adnan has created his debut solo album, Boarders Behind, expressing through music, his new identity of compositions, rhythms, virtuosity and feelings.
Behind Borders is Adnan’s debut solo album. It is the fruit of two years of work on individual compositions and experiments, in which a new musical identity based on traditional oriental music mixed with other cultures such as Indian, Flamenco, Jazz and Classical music is born.
For his debut album, Adnan’s oud virtuosity has been excelled by his collaborations with Prabhu Edouard, who brings the essence of India with his delicate touch on the tables. Valentin Mussou on the cello, who adds the sense of Jazz and Classical music. Cajon and Palmas played by Javier Sanchez accenting the Flamenco passionate rhythms. And finally, inviting the legendary Flamenco flute and saxaphone player, Jorge Pardo, who made a remarkable career and finger print with Paco De Lucia. With this fine array of musical diversity, Adnan Joubran flies beyond the borders of these cultures and traditions.
