5)  Youssef Hbeisch.

Youssef Hbeisch is one of two inclusions in my list who I know nothing about other than that he is credited as the percussionist on a recording that I love. In this case the recording is the album ‘AsFar’ by Le Trio Joubran. The Trio comprises three Palestinian brothers who all play oud (Arabic lute) and Youssef Hbeisch is the guest percussionist and is also credited as co-arranger in a cover booklet that reveals little else. It is simply a brilliant album whose moods swing from serene to dramatic, and the percussion is exquisite throughout.
