Marcel Khalifé is one of Lebanon's leading musicians, reshaping traditional Arabic

predominantly vocal presentation drawn from the works of Mahmoud Darwish, the
eminent Palestinian Arab poet.

The ensemble consists of Peter Herbert (double bass), and Marcel's sons Rami Khalifé
(piano) and Bachar Khalifé (percussion and vibes).
