Mashrab refers to wine and is used symbolically in the poetry of spiritual ascetics or sufis, when attempting to describe the ecstasy and beauty of the Divine Presence. In addition, the mashrabiya is a characteristic ornamented element in Arabic architecture, defined to give shade and protection from the hot summer sun and allowing the cool air from the street to flow through.
Once upon a hot Mediterranean summer, Trio Mashrabiya was founded thanks to the encounter of Meira Segal and Tristan Driessens, two young musicians with a passion for Mediterranean and Middle-Eastern music. Inspired by their common musical background, their original compositions reveal a free and modern approach related to a deep understanding of the ancient Eastern traditions.
The trio is usually composed of Meira Segal, playing the reed flute or ney, but this time she will be replaced by Christos Barbas, playing the ney and the kaval.
Christos Barbas (ney, kaval)
Tristan Driessens (oud, lavta)
Bijan Chemirani (zarb)
