With multi-fold projects in his music archive, El Far3i is a Palestinian and Jordanian songwriter, rapper, percussionist, and producer from Amman, Jordan. He is best known as the co-founder, vocalist and percussionist of 47SOUL. Deep lyrical capabilities and versatile flow styles, have allowed him to homogenize Arabic vocals with rap, creating an original Arabic sound in the wide world of acoustic and electronic pop. His vocal inspiration sediments deep into the high mountains of Palestine, down to the Jordan Valley. It derives from global hip-hop techniques, while preserving the power of simple grooves, and floating, yet daring, ghost notes in the background. His songs come from his region’s subconscious, with lyrics that archive the socio-psychological, political and personal subtexts of Arab daily life, extending to the diaspora. Themes of love, borders, spirituality and identity manifest. El Far3i’s ever reflexive raw rapping style contrasts his soulful melodies, creating chantable anthems and craved earworms.
2012 was a witness to El Far3i’s two albums, both his debut acoustic “Soat Min Khashab”, and Arab Rap album “Far3 El Madakhil”. Since then, he has released an Arabic sample-based boom bap album, Kaman Dafsheh (2014), and the defining acoustic record, El Rajol El Khashabi (2017). El Far3i’s grass-roots approach to music projects, and his belief in the importance of solidifying, growing and evolving different independent scenes, has resulted in numerous collaborations with the Arab World’s top rappers, songwriters and producers. Such versatility and vision had also translated into him co-founding two of the biggest Alternative bands in the MENA region; El Morabba3 and 47Soul. El Far3i still does occasional live collaborations with El Morabba3, and continues the journey he started with 47Soul in 2013.
Over the past decade, El Far3i has played hundreds of memorable shows and has whisked the audience away with live performances in the Arab world, and Worldwide. He continues to tour and take the stage in festivals as a Solo Artist, and with his band, 47Soul. The incredible stage presence that he also demonstrates with 47SOUL makes him one of the best-known Arab solo artists.
