Sofie Vanden Eynde (BE), Saad Mahmood Jawad (IR) & Mahmoud Jaber (SY)
Listening to a foreign language is like gazing at an abstract painting: It is only after a while that contours and shapes begin to emerge. The Arabic poetry of Mahmoud Jaber, in combination with the Western lute of Sofie Vanden Eynde and the Eastern oud of Saad Mahmood Jawad, sounds like music to our ears. With Murmuring Muses & Whispering Jinn they immerse you in their favourite pieces and adjust the repertoire of the other tradition to their style and instrument. Allow yourself to be inspired by mumbling muses and whispering genies!
