The members of the project Dubarabi made it their business to connect the year old tradition of tarab with western electronic music. The focus will be to maintain the essence of tarab and its deep emotional expressiveness whilst creating a connection to electronic music. That way they manage to give access to the old traditions of music. Native rhythms and melodies from the orient mixed with electronic music and the diversity of the 21st century.
