Haysa 1 @ the Cultural Foundation
Prepare yourself for an exceptional night of music, as three of the most exciting Arab alternative bands of all time perform at the Cultural Foundation! El Far3i, El Morabba3 and Harget Kart will bring their biggest hits and electric stage presence to Abu Dhabi for a truly unmissable show.
Tareq Abu Kwaik, known by his stage name El Far3i, is a Palestinian songwriter, percussionist and vocalist from Amman, Jordan. He is the founder of Arabic folk and acoustic rap solo act El Far3i and Hip-Hop MC Far3 El Madakhil. Inspired by his surroundings and the high-speed changes in the world, El Far3i shares his thoughts and visions in verses, grooves and melodies from the eastern side of the River Jordan to the outer world and back. El Far3i means 'coming from a branch', which is a symbol of growth and reaching outwards to the world by feeding from the roots. El Far3i is also a member of 47Soul and was formerly a member of El Morabba3. Since 2012, he has released four solo albums.
El Morabba3 is a Jordanian-Palestinian music collective based in Jordan and known for their unique electro-rock and indie-tronic sound. Winners of Best Indie Track at the ANMA 2016, El Morabba3 is one of the musical projects leading the revival of the Arab independent music scene. With a discography of two albums - self-debut (2012) and Taraf AL-Khait (2016), El Morabba3 have toured the Arab region, Europe and North Africa. The collective is led by co-founder, singer-songwriter and bassist Muhammad Abdullah, accompanied by producer Basel Naouri on keys, trumpet and electronic production, Zeid Mseis on the drums and percussions and Firas Arrabi on the electric guitar.
Harget Kart is a Jordanian band consisting of four members who, while having very different backgrounds and experiences, became friends prior to collaborating musically. They formed the band in 2011 and started working in media, audio and video production, combining all their experiences to create their own production house, H.K Experience. Harget Kart released their first cover in 2014, followed by three videos. The band has pioneered East-West music fusion through a unique and special flavour of its own.
