Medan Trio – Mutini (My Proud)

This is a live version of our song Mutini.

This Arabic song is about the pain and pride we felt when we heard Tareq talking about his wonderful Syria. Pain because he’s here and can’t nearly do anything to help the Syrian people. But most of all we felt pride because despite all the trouble there is in Syria right now, he still loves that country with all he has.

The lyrics are from a poem by Ibrahim Touqan (إبراهيم طوقان)
مَــوطِــنــي مَــوطِــنِــي
الجـلالُ والجـمالُ والسَّــنَاءُ والبَهَاءُ
فـــي رُبَــاكْ فــي رُبَـــاكْ
والحـياةُ والنـجاةُ والهـناءُ والرجـاءُ
فــي هـــواكْ فــي هـــواكْ

My country
The power, the beauty, the high position and the pride
Within your boundaries and life, survival, highness and hope
In your sky.

Medan Trio

The Medan Trio tells stories by playing improvised, open music, combined with visual art. It features Nathalie Schaap (voc & bass), Kasper Rietkerk (saxophones) and Laurens Schweppe (keys).

They are officially founded in 2018 when they decided to write music together after some temporary projects they did. The trio is always been fascinated about the combination of visuals and music. At the end of 2018 they met a drawer and animator named Timon Vader. Together they are looking for different ways to tell stories and communicate emotions.

Together they started the project ‘The Story of Tareq’, about a Syrian refugee they met. With Timon Vader, the Medan Trio made a show and a brand new EP which was released in 2020. The tour would have taken place in April 2020 but because of Covid-19 they had to postpone it. In June 2021, they were finally able to premiere their performance with which they are still active today.
