The singer and percussionist join forces for a globe-trotting performance showcasing their ability to create something wholly new from diverse musical influences.
Nai Barghouti is a phenomenon: a Palestinian singer, composer and flute player who launched her career aged only 14. In the first of two concerts at The Hub, Barghouti is joined by regular duo partner, percussionist Ruven Ruppik. Together, they create unique sounds that bridge the gaps between Middle Eastern and European styles.
Barghouti combines impeccable skill with a sense of musical adventure. She infuses her music with an eclectic range of influences, mixing jazz and blues elements with Middle Eastern idioms. Ruven Ruppik is just as versatile. With a background in classical percussion, he absorbs styles from all over the globe and translates them into new sounds with incredible skill. He provides a perfect counterpoint to Nai Barghoutis rich and expressive voice.
The Hub Series is supported by Sir Ewan and Lady Brown together with Flure Grossart
