Masaa - Between day and night
Masaa means "the evening" in Arabic. The music of this quartet mixes poetry and contemporary jazz. The improvised verses of the Lebanese singer Rabih Lahoud cross paths with the trumpet of Marcus Rust and the guitar of Reentko Dirks - but without serving the usual Oriental clichés of world jazz.

Mantra is a very personal and intimate song of the upcoming album BEIT (Apr 28). The video by Javier Sobremazas Filmmaker captures this atmosphere in its very own way.
Our friend Bjarke Falgren from Denmark has contributed to this song in a way that we didn't even hope for. Thank you so much Bjarke and Javier!

Right at the beginning of the concert, the singer shows his sensitive, kind, vulnerable side. "I don't know you at all" - a confession, as it were, of how he understands his music and his songs. As an overcoming of borders and distances, which in the mystical power of music gets by without analytical categories, which can build bridges, create peace. The four musicians play as if immersed in prayer, then again ecstatically like dancing dervishes. Subtle, sensitive and open to every new nuance. And at the same time receptive to resonance. They were so tired after a long drive, Laboud says with a quiet smile. But this warm welcome from this great team in the Burghof: unique.

NOW AVAILABLE EVERYWHERE! Episode 4 of "THE OTHER YOU", my podcast about pop, personality and voice.
This time the guest is the impressive singer Rabih Lahoud. In addition to his band Masaa, he is not only a soloist and composer on the road, he is also one of the most sought-after vocal lecturers in the country.
In this episode we talk about his growing up in the shadow of the Middle East conflict, his arrival in Europe and how he finally found his way on stage as a singer. If you also want to know how this life journey inspired his recently published book "Voice in Flow", then listen in.
