Mohsen Subhi - Mawasem

Friday, July 3, 2009 ·

Mohsen Subhi was born in Ramallah, Palestine, where he began studying music at the age of seven. He studied the oud under master oud player Hatem Al-Afghani. He worked as the Music Director of the Palestinian National Music and Dance Troupe (El Funoun) and composed the music to their popular production “Zaghareed.” Subhi moved to the United States in 2001. Jihad Touma - backcover (translated from arabic): Subhi starts in maqam, in a circle widening with revelation, proceeding to a point where, necessarily, commentary falls short. And then there is the passage... He proceeds with working the maqam, confounding it, subtly morphing its identity into hybrid, genuine forms, loading every sound with the pangs of yet unborn maqams... Breaks are not expected in the moments and the spaces they span. Breaks are expected in their reflections. The 'oud trembles, groans, lurches, longs... The 'oud listens to its echo. The echo of the 'oud infuses the horizon of the rhythme as homogenous column. And in the end, the maqam settles on the inevitability of its absence.
