Fareeq el Atrash is a live Arabic hip-hop band representing Beirut, Lebanon. The crew has been consistently rocking stages at center of the bubbling local Beirut underground scene since 2006. It is spearheaded by the region’s finest and most lyrical emcees: Edd Abbas and Cappuchyno, along with the country’s hands-down best beatboxer, live vocal effects man, and all-round entertainer, FZ.
Backed by the forever-funky veteran drummer Fouad Afra and founding member and bass player John Imad Nasr, Fareeq el Atrash is set to release “Al Mawjeh el Tarsha”, their new album, and expand beyond Lebanon in their quest to bring socially conscious music that moves crowds and is in tune with the times.
John Nasr, comme tu le sais, c’est quasi mon cousin.
