The Palestinian songwriter, percussionist and vocalist El Far3i believes in the power of his music. Based in Amman (Jordan), El Far3i tries to approach the political issues in Palestine through an humorous perspective and without aggression. Nevertheless, he thinks that sometimes it is necessary to “fight fire with fire”. But to change the way people think, you have to spread your ideas and work on yourself.
El Far3i’s music can be described as a mixture of Hip Hop, Arabic Folk and Acoustic Rap. As a youngster, the singer was passionate about classical arabic poetry. Nowadays he writes songs about political and social issues concerning his country. His song “Civil Resistance” is a plea for respect and an invitation for everybody to join the resistance movement.
