The brothers Joubran, native Palestinians, unite in this trio to play music inspired by improvisation but based in the music of their heritage. The title Randana is a combination word meaning resonance and humming. All siblings play the oud; they jam in a fashion that suggests their shared spirited brotherhood and utilize acute listening, an easily heard dynamic balance, a certain amount of showmanship, and a clear virtuosity. Each piece is internally defined by humanistic qualities and a love for life. In light of the continuing Palestinian-Israeli dispute that affects the world in general, this is a music based on hope, peace, and all the proper values of living and working together. There are four studio tracks, the most varied being the opener, "Hawas." You hear melodic unison playing; tempos ranging from mid- to upbeat; back-and-forth counterpoint; and a playful concept filled with passion, emotion, and a little mystery. "Misage" is purely sensual with a slowed late-night imagery of exotic dancers, while the balladic "Shangaf" is more of a spirit song based on a hide-and-seek theme. The most powerful and lengthy piece (18 minutes), "Safar" expresses a patient virtue with several solo segments, reflecting repast, recourse, and perseverance. It has parts of phrases that are sped up, slowed, but not stretched out -- more like teasing. The finale, recorded live in concert, is the spacious and free love song "Ahwak," played by the ouds with lyrics. As world music and ethnic fusion, here's a group unique from them all, quite talented and set apart from other oud leaders who utilize a band with a rhythm section.

Undervalued: a Look Back on Female Composers

From Sappho of Mytilene to Kaija Saariaho and Clara Schumann, several women have managed to break through the macho codes of the milieu and become composers. While the classical music landscape has been largely dominated by men in recent centuries, the work of their female colleagues, whether pioneers or contemporaries, is just as fascinating. Here we put eleven undervalued figures of female composition in the spotlight.

The World According to Peter Gabriel

A figurehead of the British prog rock scene with Genesis, Peter Gabriel, who will turn 70 on February 13th, later became a champion of world music and an example of the politically engaged artist, through his label Real World, his Womad festivals and of course the protest song “Biko”, etched into the history books and made famous from the Amnesty International tour concerts. Let’s take a look back at the career of a pop star not like the others.

Santana: The Tijuana Lizard

Santana’s CV boasts an iconic Woodstock performance, a dozen Grammy Awards, millions of record sales (thanks to his metamorphosis into a Latin pop star), and more and more prestigious collaborations... He’s one of those artists that everyone loves - peers, public and critics alike. Here, we explore the life of an accomplished artist who is constantly renewing himself, much like a lizard shedding its skin.
