Oud player Wissam Jubran and poet Ronny Somek uncork a metaphoric bottle of arak and pour it over the roofs of the words and the strings of the oud. The arak is called “lion’s milk” in Arabic, thus Jubran’s oud and Somek’s words are an invitation to a splendid jungle where mainly eastern winds blow. An intimate and once-only performance for the Oud Festival.
