Perfect flavors in Music Matbakh!

"Different musical flavors from Mashreq, Maghreb & the UK: Music Matbakh has 14 alternative musicians from Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, Egypt, Tunisia and Morrocco. They came together under the music directorship of Justin Adams (Robert Plant's guitarist) to play fusions that marry Jazz tunes to rock, oriental, electronica, folk and rap. Music Matbakh toured the UK and got ultimate media coverage by Britrish media, before performing at Le Boulevard Festival in Casablanca (Morocco) with internationally-renowned bands such as Immortal Technique, Coldcut, and Paradise Lost. From Jordan, Ruba Saqr (voice + guitar) and Yacoub Abu Ghosh (bass guitar) are taking part in MusicMatbakh. Music Matbakh will leave on July 23 to perform in Syria. And in August the group will perform in Alexandria, Cairo and Tunis" event group, facebook.

Khobbeizeh thank you for the video! I really appreciate it.. I couldn't find the words to describe the show to my friends who didnt got the chance to come.. so I simply showed them your video! it said it all :)
I still can't find the words to describe the music matbakh experience! it was out of this world experience.. I went crazy.. I couldn't find words to thank Ruba Saqer for her exceptional voice i'm not good with words.. so I gave her a big hug before even introducing myself... that was crazy rude and freaky!! but If I could hire a guy to hug all the male musicians for me I would!!! I loved them all!

I left a comment here, not sure how it didn't go through. After your permission, I copied the video to a post I posted about Music Matbakh a while ago. Of course I added the original source of the video to you
