Marcel Khalife – 2012 -  Fall Of The Moon مارسيل خليفة – سقوط القمر

Marcel Khalifé was born on June 10, 1950 in Amchit, Lebanon. He studied the Oud (the Arabic lute) at the Beirut National Conservatory of Music and graduated in 1971, and, ever since, has been injecting a new life into the Oud.Portrait

From 1972 to 1975, Marcel Khalifé taught at the Beirut National Conservatory of Music, public Universities and other local private music institutions. During that same period, he toured the Middle East, North Africa, Europe and the United States giving solo performances on the Oud.

Oud playing was traditionally constrained by the strict techniques that governed its playing. Highly talented and skillful musicians such as Marcel Khalifé were, however, able to free the instrument from those constraints and thus greatly expanding its possibilities.

In 1972, Marcel Khalifé created a musical group in his native village, Amchit, with the goal of reviving its musical heritage and the Arabic chorale. The first performances took place in Lebanon. 1976 saw the birth of Marcel Khalifé’s Al Mayadine Ensemble. Enriched by the previous ensemble’s musical experiences, Al Mayadine’s notoriety went well beyond Lebanon. Accompanied by his musical ensemble, Marcel Khalifé began a lifelong far-reaching musical journey, performing in Arab countries, Europe, the United States, Canada, South America, Australia, and Japan.

Marcel Khalifé’s compositions have been performed by several orchestras, notably the Kiev Symphony Orchestra, the Academy of Boulogne Billancourt Orchestra, The San Francisco Chamber Orchestra, the Orchestra of the city of Tunis, the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, the Italian Philharmonic Orchestra, the Royal Oman Symphony Orchestra and the “Absolute Ensemble”.

Since 1982, Marcel Khalifé has been writing books on music that reflect his avant garde compositions and the maturity of his experience. He published Al Samaa, a collection of compositions for various traditional Arab musical instruments (1981), a six part methodology for the study of the Oud (1982), and Arabic Music-Theory and Practice (French Edition, 1984), Jadal oud Duo (1996), OUD (1997), Andalusian Suite for oud and Orchestra (2002).

His challenges, however, are not only musical in character. Interpreter of music and Oud performer, he is also a composer who is deeply attached to the text on which he relies. In his association with great contemporary Arab poets, particularly Palestinian poet par excellence, Mahmoud Darwish, he seeks to renew the character of the Arabic song, to break its stereotypes, and to advance the culture of the society that surrounds it.

Marcel Khalifé’s lyrical and instrumental recordings add up to more than 20 albums and DVDs, Promises of the storm (1976), Rain Songs (1977), Where from, do I Enter the Homeland? (1978), Weddings (1979), At the Borders (1979), Stripped Bare (1980), Happiness (1981), The Bridge (1983), Collections – 3 Albums (1984), Dreamy Sunrise (1984), Ahmad Al Arabi (1984), Peace Be With you (1989), Ode To A Homeland (1990), Arabic Coffeepot (1995), Jadal Oud Duo (1996), Magic Carpet (1998), Concerto Al Andalus (2002), Caress (2004), Voyageur DVD (2004), Taqasim (2007), Sharq CD & DVD (2007).

On his journey, Marcel Khalifé invents and creates original music, a novel world of sounds, freed of all pre-established rules. This language elevates him to the level of an ambassador of his own culture and to the vanguard of Arabic music in search of innovators.

Samir Joubran - 2001 - Sou' Fahm سمير جبران - سوء فهم

Samir Joubran was born in Nazareth, in 1973, in the Galilee. At five, his father introduces him to the oud. The encounter between boy and instrument is more like the passionate encounter of two lovers. At nine, Samir enters the Nazareth Institute of Music. In 1995 he graduates from the highly prestigious Muhammad Abdul Wahhab Conservatory of Cairo. His musical talents are recognized in the musical workshops and seminars he attends in various arabic and European countries, leading him to teach the oud in a large number of schools and institutes.

The Joubran family adventure begins with Samir, an innovative soloist. Their first album, Taqaseem, comes out in 1996, followed by Sou’fahm in 2001. His first album under the Daqui label (the label of the Atypical Nights in Langon), Tamaas, appears in 2002. His run of performances in European and Middle Eastern venues begins. At the time, Samir is the only Palestinian performing outside the borders of his country. He is also the first musician to be awarded, in 2003-2004, a two-year scholarship to Italy through the Writer’s Asylum Program which is organized by the International Parliament of Writers.

His musical virtuosity receives universal acclaim, and he is quickly invited to play with numerous other artists, in particular with great poets of the likes of Mahmoud Darwish. Music allies itself with the spoken word to bring to life poetry where melancholy and passion are inextricably mixed.

Samir Joubran’s musical talent is acknowledged by the movie world when he composes the original sound track for Rashir Masharawi’s Ticket to Jerusalem. He is then contacted by director François Dupeyron. Three tracks from the album Tamaas are included in the sound track of Inguélézi. Three titles from Randana are used in Parvez Sharmas’ documentary A jihad for love (coming out this year).

After Randana, the first album to bring together all three Joubran brothers, their new opus, Majâz, will come out this fall. With Palesine beating in his heart, driven by his desire to give voice to his oud, Samir Joubran will travel the world with his brothers.

“We have two battles to fight. The first is for our career, and the other is for peace in Palestine, and the end of the occupation.”

Le Trio Joubran - 2011–AsFar الثلاثي جبران – 2011 - أسفار

“أسفار” الثلاثي جبران : دوران حول الذات والكون.

أسفار” هي الأسطوانة الخامسة للثلاثي سمير ووسام وعدنان جبران بعد “رندنة” و”مجاز” و”في ظل الكلام” وموسيقى فيلم”التحليق الأخير”.

اختارالفريق صالة باريسية كبرى هي مسرح الشانزيليزيه في الرابع من نيسان لتقديم جديدهم قبل أن ينتقل إلى مدن فرنسية وأوروبية وأمريكية وبعد الحفلات الفلسطينية في بداية آذار، فالثلاثي يصر دائما على منحها الأولوية.

بعد عامين من التحضير والمخاض العسير تخلله حفلات أسطوانة “في ظل الكلام” تكريما للراحل محمود دريش الحاضر بصوته، رأت أسطوانة “أسفار” النور منطلقة من مقطوعة نوّار التي تفتتح الألبوم تماما كما نستقبل صباحنا المتمّم لما سبق والمكمّل لما سيأتي.

المفاجأة كانت  باستضافة صوت حميم لمبدع آخر ليس إلا الموسيقي التونسي العالمي ظافر يوسف في مقطوعتي “زواج اليمام” و”دجى” مع كل ما يحمل من نفحات صوفية  نقلنا بعدها الثلاثي إلى “سما قرطبا” العزيزة على قلب عدنان كما هي الهند عزيزة على قلب وسام. أما جملة “أسفار” الموسيقية المسجلة مرة واحدة في الأستديو من دون تدريبات مسبقة فتأخذ حيزا مهما من الأسطوانة تماما كما أخذت الأسفار من حياتهم في السنوات الأخيرة لينتهي الألبوم بمقطوعة “مسانا” وبالعودة إلى نقطة الانطلاق ليكتمل الدوران،  والى الأصل كانتماء للمكان وللموسيقى الشرقية. الإيقاع للفنان يوسف حبيش الذي يرافق ثلاثي جبران منذ أسطوانة “مجاز” وقام هذه المرة بالتوزيع الموسيقي.
لم يعد العود هنا هو الموضوع الأساسي بل هي الموسيقى والتحاور مع النفس ومع الآخرفي حركة وثبات معا.

Rahim AlHaj, Ottmar Liebert, Jon Gagan, Barrett Martin - 2009 - Under the Rose

The deep and soulful sound of Spanish flamenco is rooted in a unique series of historical events and cultural overlaps that stretch across centuries, reaching from India to the New World—none more important than the Moorish conquest of the Iberian peninsula in the eighth century.

Early in the Moors’ reign, an illustrious Iraqi oud player, Ziryab, fled Baghdad in fear for his life, as the story goes, and migrated to Córdoba, a cultural center of Al-Andalus (Andalusia). He brought with him a profound musical heritage and a host of innovations that laid the foundation for Spanish music. Among many other things, he initiated an evolutionary process that led to the development of the modern flamenco guitar.

The circle has come round again, and another illustrious Iraqi oud player, Rahim AlHaj, has fled political tyranny in Baghdad, carrying with him an ancient musical heritage and a head full of innovative ideas. Among those ideas is his determination to engage players across a wide range of musical genres to explore the common language of music, which reflects our common humanity.

On Under the Rose, AlHaj combines with the world-renowned guitarist Ottmar Liebert to unite the ancestral Iraqi tradition with modern flamenco, celebrating and exploring the family connections. Liebert, who has incorporated his own innovative ideas into the vocabulary of flamenco—bringing electric bass, synthesizer, electronics, drum kit, and more into the mix—proves a compelling musical foil to the ancient sound of the oud and AlHaj’s contemporary approach to the instrument.

Ably assisted by Jon Gagan (bass, keyboard), who also produced the CD, finding just the right textures and contexts to illuminate this unique pairing, and Barrett Martin (percussion), these two musical masters bring a fresh perspective to flamenco that echoes its distant past while perhaps anticipating its future. Whether playing in call and response (“The Coin”), weaving two lines together in a rhythmic dance (“A Storm Approaches”), experimenting with electronic embellishments (“Return to Andalusia”), or hewing closer to tradition (“Under the Rose”)—AlHaj and Liebert display a rare musical simpatía that bridges cultures and genres.

This collection of 10 tracks—all collaboratively composed by the four players—offers a deep-soothing balm for the listener. From the most energetic to the most profoundly contemplative, each track takes the ears on a short, refreshing journey that reaffirms music’s magical powers and the virtuosity of these splendid musicians.

Track List:

  1. Under the Rose (05:03)
  2. The Delivery (03:51)
  3. Don’t Wait, My Love (06:02)
  4. The Seduction (04:55)
