Njoum in Berlin | a recap

Just came back from Berlin, where I performed “Njoum”, with musician/producer Fadi Tabbal, at two lovely venues: Shakespeare & Sons bookstore, as part of the “Music for Dozens” series curated by Charlie Rayne, and Auf Bau Haus theatre.
Got to meet interesting musicians, visit historical places, spend quality time with lovely friends and taste amazing beer.

Thank you Berlin!

Aquarium #4 & #5 | at Irtijal festival

Aquarium is a collaborative project between Fadi Tabbal and Youmna Saba (and a varying line-up of collaborators), where the two Lebanese musicians explore ambient drones and textural soundscapes, by way of prepared guitars and oud. The performances follow a specific sonic set-up, wherein both audience and musicians are surrounded by the speakers”.

We presented this project again this year, as part of the 15th edition of Irtijal festival for experimental music, in Lebanon: two sessions took place at Onomatopoeia the Music Hub, where we collaborated, respectively, with percussionist Wassim Halal, and singer Saadet Turkoz.

Videos to be uploaded soon!
