Mid 2007, she took part in UK-sponsored Music Matbakh under the music leadership of English producer Justin Adams, Robert Plant’s guitarist and producer of Malian desert blues band Tinariwen (She toured the UK & 5 Arab countries with the project). Ruba’s family, from her mother’s side, comprises a lineage of Sufi teachers... this has had influence on her introduction of elements of Sufism, Arabic soul & blues into her singing.

Ruba Saqr was recently described by Justin Adams as “the Jordanian Joan Baez." She will be releasing her debut album in 2008. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
