Musician, composer and one of the most revered figures for today's younger generation of experimental and alternative Arabic music scenes, Kamilya Jubran (text, oud, vocals), collaborates with long-standing musical partner, composer, accomplished trumpet player, and seasoned electronic musician Werner Hasler (trumpet, electronics). In Wa (Arabic for "and"), their third album together as a duo, Kamilya Jubran and Werner Hasler continue to interrogate their listening and their expression, their research and their desires, to unravel a musical universe of possibilities; "a unison of timbres, cultures complementing, the complicity of verses, and modes and languages confronting each other" in the duo's own way of communicating respective origins and contemporaneity. Lyrical, within a sound full of contrast and ornamentation, they pursue an expansion of their repertoire with imaginative interpretation and improvisation. Includes printed inner sleeve and download code; edition of 300.
