And a portrait
Hanging by a thread
They fell off the road of life
Wail, my heart
Time has fallen
Sabreen is an ensemble of Palestinian Arab musicians, lyricists, and sound technicians from Jerusalem who extol old-fashioned virtues of patience and steadfastness in song and performance. The instrumentation includes traditional kawal, oud, qanoon and hand drums augmented with classical contrebass, cello and violin. Sabreen is fronted by the accomplished, attractive, and highly ornamented voice of Kamilya Jubran, who swoons and trills fervently on all ten songs of this 44-minute recording.
