El Morabba3

‫" المربّع هو أربع زوايا اساسية احداها هو صوت محمّد عبد الله و كلماته الناقدة و أخرى هي نبرة طارق أبو كويك و كلماته الباحثة عن الأمل أمّا عدي شواقفة فزاويته مسؤولة عن خلق الأصوات البعيدة و القريبة التي تملأ الفراغ بين الكلمات و أخيرا الزاوية المكمّلة للمربّع هي ايقاعات ضرار شواقفة التي تحمل الكلمات و الألحان و الأصوات و تضيف لحنا ايقاعيا عليها......‬
".‫لذا فان المربّع هو نافذة نرى من خلالها أشياء نريد ‬التعبير عنها..يمكنكم التخيّل ماذا نرى في هذا الجزء من العالم..

"El Morabba3 is a combination of 4 angles in which one of them holds Muhammad Abdullah's voice and lyrics the other contains Tareq Abu Kwiak's voice and lyrics, then comes Odai Shawagfeh's ambient guitar sounds that fill the air around the words and finally Dirar Shawagfeh's melodic grooves that carry everything out.. El Morabba3 to us is the window in which we see things we want to express...being from a region that had seen alot of occupation (still does) you can imagine what we see."

Aziz Maraka


Aziz Marak completed his Bachelor studies in Music Composition & started his career in music. His music is Razz which is a mixture of Rock, Arabic and Jazz music – he says “ It is hard to understand this genre if you haven’t heard it. It has the energy from rock, but it is still pure Jordanian thoughts and Arabic tunes. The Jazz smooths it out a little, so you get Razz.
