Kamilya Jubran is a beloved Palestinian musician who has been voice of resistance for decades now. Elias Jubran, her father, an authentic instrument maker and a music teacher; was her first source of classical Arabic musical education.

For two decades, Kamilya was Sabreen’s lead song performer, and player of Oud, Qanoon, and other oriental instruments. From 1982 to 2002, they represented the voice of resistance; struggle for freedom, and a deep and dynamic artistic-political process that created a new style of a modern Arabic song.

Jubran did many great solo performances in the last decade, but also mesmerizing new collaborations. Here you can listen to her and Werner Hasler, performing the song Wahdi from the album Wanabni.
