The scintillating oud/electronics duo return for the release of their third album ‘Wa’.
Musician, composer and one of the most revered figures for today’s younger generation of experimental and alternative Arabic music scenes, Oud player Kamilya Jubran, collaborates with long standing musical partner, composer, accomplished trumpet player and seasoned electronic musician Werner Hasler. With over 40 years of a pioneering musical legacy, Jubran and Hasler are now touring to promote ‘Wa’, their latest album together described by The Quietus as ‘utterly distinctive, mysterious, expansive…and all the more rewarding for it’.
Support on the night comes from the Iraqi multi-instrumentalist and composer Khyam Allami who explores contemporary and novel approaches to the Oud and the rich history of Arabic scales by magnifying them with electroacoustics.
Join us for a night celebrating some of the leading contemporary musical figures from the Middle East and beyond, which celebrates the spearheading artistry and creativity that flourishes in the region.
This event has been made possible with support from Arts Council England and Al Araby TV.
