Jad Al Rabb

Jad Al Rabb, the old master on the heavy and ancient tabla baladi, died in 2009 in Luxor where he was born and spent his life.

When we saw him last in Luxor during the CD recordings for Al Masdar, he could hardly move his hands anymore and it was difficult for him to play due to the strong pain he suffered. His artistry will be remembered for ever on all recordings of Alain Weber for the Musicians of the Nile and on the tanz raum CD Al Masdar, where he was recorded one last time before he died.
