Depuis dix ans, le trio de oud des frères Joubran enchante le monde avec ses créations et sa virtuosité. Pour son premier disque en solo, Adnan (oud, percussions, voix) a réuni trois partenaires venus de cultures différentes, Prabhu Edouard, tablas, Valentin Mussou, violoncelle, Javier Sanchez, cajon, palmas ; une palette sonore originale renforcée par la présence du flutiste saxophoniste Jorge Pardo, compagnon de route de Paco de Lucia. Agrégeant subtilement trois traditions, trois aires géographiques (Proche Orient, Espagne et Inde), les neuf compositions d’Adnan manifestent une véritable science des climats à la fois délicats et puissants. Si elles conservent leur enracinement dans la tradition moyen-orientale, ces rêveries personnelles intimes s’ouvrent subtilement sur le monde - Mondomix


Le benjamin de la fratrie célèbre palestinienne débride son imaginaire romantique du côté des rythmiques indiennes et flamencas. Sur disque, ses compositions subtiles et ses rêveries audacieuses font mouche. On lui fait confiance pour donner corps à ce répertoire sensible sur scène.

Pour son envol en solo, le benjamin du Trio Joubran a réuni autour de lui trois partenaires venus de cultures différentes, le joueur de tabla indien Prabhu Edouard, le violoncelliste français Valentin Moussou, l'Espagnol Javier Sanchez au cajon et aux palmas et en invité spécial le souffleur espagnol Jorge Pardo au saxophone et à la flûte. Ce premier album, il l'a produit seul dans son home studio parisien à quelques encablures du Centre Pompidou. Depuis trois ans Adnan Joubran travaille, compose ces 9 nouveaux titres dont la musique a ses racines dans la tradition moyen-orientale et qui s'enrichit du flamenco comme de la musique indienne. - FIP (France Inter Paris)


Discography

Solo

BORDERS BEHIND is Adnans 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, Adnans 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.

Alongside his new project BORDERS BEHIND, Adnan forms LE TRIO JOUBRAN with his two brothers Wissam & Samir Joubran, who during the past ten years had released five albums, and recently celebrated their First Ten Years boxet at the OLYMPIA in Paris.

Bio

For his first solo flight, the youngest of Le Trio Joubran has chosen to collaborate with three musicians hailing from a variety of cultural backgrounds, the Indo-French tabla player, Prabhu Edouard, the French cellist, Valentin Moussou, and special guest, Jorge Pardo, the Spanish saxophonist and flautist.

Borders Behind, which reveals Adnan Joubran as a talented composer, embraces the world.  Radiating both tenderness and strength, suffused with the heady perfumes of jazz, all spun together by the intricate touch of Joubrans oud, it is as if we were listening to the soundtrack to our imaginations.

An oud player and composer, born on 9th November, 1985 into a family with a deep rooted passion for music and oud making. 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’s albums with the Trio (Majaz and Asfar), have won numerous prizes and awards. They have been chosen to compose music for award winning and Oscar nominated documentaries and films such as Le Dernier Vol by Karim dridi, starring Marion Cotillard and Guillaume Canet. Adieu Gary by Nassim Amaouche, starring Jean Pierre Bakri, which won best Music for Films award in Dubai International Film Festival (DIFF 2011). The Last Friday by Yahya al Abdallah, which also won best Music for Films award in DIFF (2012) and finally the infamous Oscar Nominated Five Broken Cameras (2013). They have topped the World Music charts in France with a Number 1 Album and have been privileged to collaborate with many artists such as the late Mahmoud Darwish, Chkrr and Dhafer Youssef. 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.
