PALESTINIAN MISSION IN THE NIEUWE KERK, THE HAGUE (NL)
16 NOVEMBER 2017
On the occasion of the UN International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People, a reception was organized by the Palestinian Mission in the Netherlands in the beautiful Nieuwe Kerk of The Hague (NL). They had invited Disarming Design from Palestine for an exhibition and the event was followed by a concert of Trio Joubran. With these activities the Palestinian Mission wished to give expression to a celebrated cultural tradition of Palestine.
The brothers Samir, Wissam and Adnan are the fourth generation in the Joubran family of oud players, the Arab lute. Their traditional Arab music is mixed with influences from jazz, flamenco and the Western classical tradition. In 2010 they performed at the Holland Festival in Amsterdam, where they combined their music with the world-renowned poetry of Palestinian poet Mahmoud Darwish.
