Without limits or artificial ingredients, this is a music that combines a mix of traditions, showing contrasts of volumes, lines, natural textures and expressiveness. What emerges is music of splendid energy, alternately meditative, lyrical, both spontaneous and architected.

About the Artists
The three brothers Osama, Basil and Elia formed the Khoury Trio (now The Khoury Project) in 2002. The Khoury Project music is contemporary, combining identifiable Arabic forms with globalized rhythms. Although faithful to the great tradition of classical Arabic music, the Khoury Project fuses music with many other genres including Opera, flamenco, Celtic, Indian, and jazz.
