Sabil is the work of the highly respected Palestinian oud player Ahmad Al-Khatib and the extraordinary percussionist Youssef Hbeisch who has appeared regularly in the UK with the Palestinian oud group Trio Joubran. Throughout the Near East Al-Khatib is seen as perpetuating the great virtuoso tradition of his instrument. He has been forced to live in exile due to the tightening of restriction on movement in his Palestinian home. Hbeisch, born in Galilee, is a specialist in Oriental percussion. This album invites us to follow the two master musicians on a Sabil - a path that leads the audience to new musical experiences, to places filled with nostalgia.
