Marwan Abado

Marwan Abado

Marwan Abado est un chanteur et musicien originaire de Palestine, mais vivant et travaillant en Autriche depuis une vingtaine d'années. Il pratique oud  et puise ses racines dans une tradition musicale arabe classique tiré du taq' sim où on explore ses vibrations intérieures.

Cherchant les ponts pour connecter une fusion musicale entre Orient et Occident,  Marwan brasse sa culture musicales aux influences occidentales pour établir une poésie nouvelles ayant pour fil conducteur l'amour, l'espérance, l'exil. Sa voix est douce et nous transporte vers un univers de la culture bédouine.

Marwan Abado is a Palestinian singer, composer and oud player. (The oud is an oriental, short-necked lute.) Abado´s music has its roots in the classical Arabic musical tradition of the "TAQ´SIM," which is not restricted to particular rhythms, but which springs from the inner impulses of the musician. Contemporary Arab poetry and prose often provide the inspiration for Abado´s lyrics; thought-provoking commentary on the political realities of the Palestinians is interwoven through his texts.

These songs add a unique dimension to contemporary Arabic music by forging a new relationship between performer and audience, challenging the audience to listen carefully to the words of the songs and to experience the quiet melodies--in contrast to a tradition of being transported by a rhythmic repetition of phrases which transcend meaning and sweep the audience away on a tide of feeling. Deliberately distancing himself from the genre of didactic protest songs which raise a scolding finger to the audience, Abado chooses a poetic register for his songs, whose themes fall somewhere between lamenting sorrow and courageous hope. His music is an improvisational mix of Oriental forms and Western elements.
