THREE VOICES is the first vinyl release from Munma, and the second vinyl release from Lebanese alternative label Ruptured.

Munma's new album is marked by several vocal collaborations, a departure in style for this pioneer of Beirut's electronic scene.

As such, the vocal element was always present in the music of Munma, whether through radio broadcasts, samples of political speeches, recordings of musicians' voices and the like, but he had never actually used the human voice as an intrinsic element in his compositions.

Following his successful collaboration with rapper El Rass and other hip-hop artists from Beirut and the neighboring area (including Touffar, El Far3i and Boikutt, among others), Jawad Nawfal became drawn towards the capabilities of the human voice, more specifically the reciting of poetry by a human voice, and began to integrate this element in his music process.

He called on various writers, mostly female ones, to write personal texts and recite them in spoken-word form in the studio.

He then proceeded to build specific music beds around these voice recordings and recitations.

The resulting album is 'three Voices', a fully collaborative yet vastly personal album of electronic treatments and human narration.
