"Trio Joubran has been breaking musical barriers for over ten years. Brothers Samir, Wissam and Adnan make up the world's first and only oud trio. With their skillful, heart-wrenching improvisations that tell of Palestine, the trio brings to bear harmony and sweetness, depth and joy. On stage, as their eyes meet, their instruments join together to express that which the spoken word cannot. Working here with the great poet Mahmoud Darwich, the group has reached a pinnacle. The trio comments, 'Mahmoud Darwich was as sensitive to the notes of our ouds as our ears and hearts to his poetry. We accompanied him in more than thirty shows in Europe and the Arab world. The last one was in France, in Arles, this beautiful city where we decided to begin a common work and where our music would accompany the variations of his voice, in strength and weakness, certainty and doubt, life and death... When he passed away, we decided to realize this project and the accompanying became a tribute.'" "A L'ombre Des Mots features the recording and the shooting of the concert given on September 19th, 2008 at the Cultural Palace, in Ramallah, Palestine, on the memorial day of Mahmoud Darwich, forty days after his death." DVD is in Arabic with French subtitles.
