cd cover Wissam Murad
Min Ba'd (Sabreen Productions)

One of the lead vocalists and leaders of the Palestinian ensemble Sabreen steps forward with a rich recording of modern songs and instrumantal works rooted in tradition. The compositions are all by Murad, with lyrics from the writings of the late Biram Altunisi. He is accompanied by an excellent ensemble of ud, bass, percussion, violin, kanoun and cello. Highly recommended.

About the artist:
Min Ba'd, Wissam Murad's first solo CD, has just been released by Sabreen Association for Artistic Development. The CD is a compilation of songs and musical pieces composed by Wissam Murad to lyrics of the late Biram Altunisi. Altunisi's poetry was chosen because of its depth and his close relationship with Sayyed Darwish, Wissam's mentor and source of inspiration. The music created is modern but with a classical perspective. It crosses a lot of boundaries, defies categorization and brings sentiments of the past in contemporary music setting.

The CD, which Wissam has been working on for 3 years, reflects many influences of music and culture. These influences can be observed in the musical composition and the multi instrumentation.

Wissam is a Palestinian musician and a practicing artist. He plays the oud and percussion and has participated and performed in many concerts and festivals, locally and internationally. He is a member of Sabreen Group and his music tells you a story and "a make believe".

Please note!
Most CDs have been imported from Europe or Asia. They are not all shrink-wrapped, and I am not going to con you by wrapping them here just to make you think they have been sterilized in America. We guarantee that the CDs and the contents are all brand new and in perfect condition. Whenever I can, I use recycled shipping materials. They may not look as pretty on the outside, but they save money and keep the trash dumps a little bit emptier.
