Sabreen group




Sabreen Group – the Palestinian Music Group was formed in 1980 with a vision focused on the development of the Palestinian modern song, reflecting the humanitarian and cultural reality in general, and the suffering endured from the political situation in particular. Thus, their recordings remain imbued with a sense of hope, yet reflect the frustrations and longing associated with Palestine. Its music is constantly taking new directions and forms and as such, embodies the spirit of creativity and innovation. Sabreen music is a language and a world of its own and is derived from local sources (folklore, traditional music) as well as international sources (jazz, rock, etc.). This unique blend of music and cultures continue to distinguish Sabreen's music thus presenting it as a recognized Palestinian and International voice.

Rather than remain static, producing new albums but churning out the same sound year after year, its sound has evolved and matured to mix soulful lyrics with a fusion of musical influences, including classical oriental Arabic, and musical traditions from the east and the west. Its music is constantly taking new directions and forms and as such, embodies the spirit of creativity and innovation.

As they cannot be placed in the standard, tidy categories of most commercial productions in the music industry, Sabreen's recordings are laborious to promote, difficult to market, thus requiring sustaining financially. It is a blend of stubbornness and flexibility that has sustained Sabreen through the passing years, as it has had to compensate for the lacking infrastructure necessary for its growth.

Sabreen music is a language and a world unto its own. And is derived from the local sources (folklore, traditional music) as well as from international sources (jazz, rock, etc.). This unique blend of music and cultures continue to distinguish Sabreen's music thus presenting it as a recognized Palestinian and International voice.
