Haddab is a virtuoso of the classical oud, that fretless Arabic lute beloved of Middle Eastern orchestras and an instrument with a history stretching back over 5,000 years. Inspired by traditional players such as post WW2 sensation Udi Hrant Kenkulian, a blind Armenian Turk who eased the oud into popular music by rearranging traditional songs, Haddab mastered the instrument and took it with him into French global electronica trio Ekova and the acclaimed experimental duo DuOud.

It’s not hard to close one’s eyes and quickly drift off into the magical musical tapestry that the Joubrans skillfully knit with melodies that do their own singing in the absence of vocals. The latter do come, most notably from ex-Pink Floyd frontman Roger Waters, who conducts the emotion-laden “Carry the Earth” with his iconic presence. The spiritual union that Le Trio Joubran carefully construct through their love affair with the oud permeates soaring chef-d’oeuvres like “Clay,” which introduces jazz contours via a mesmerizing piano mid-section. “The Long March” is a work of art that serves as a playground for the Joubrans’ extraordinary experiment.

In dabke-inducing opener “Machina,” the band sprinkle Arabic lyrics with occasional pronouncements in English. Songs like “Mo Light” symbolize their genre-busting mix of everything from dub, reggae and funk to shami (Levantine) music that cradles sprawling, anthemic choruses. Show less
