Preview: Global Sunday – El Far3i @ Hootananny (London; Sunday 26th January 2020)
We wanted to start our 2020 at Hootananny with a bang, or better, with a first-rate musician. So, for our first Global Sunday of the year, we thought there was no better way to do that than by inviting a brilliant singer/songwriter who moves between Arabic folk and acoustic rap and brightens his lyrics with his heart-to-heart and outspoken perspective on the present.
We are talking about Palestinian but Jordan-based songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and vocalist (as well as co-founder of our beloved 47Soul) ElFar3i, who will join us on the last Sunday of January to present brand new and old tunes from his repertoire, accompanied by his guitar.
No better way to close one week and jump into a new one than by gathering plenty of inspiration, enjoying the notes played by an uplifting musician, and listening to his perceptive and sharp verses.
Every month, we bring you a collection of the best world music-related videos. That’s our way to give value to too often overlooked, rich and diverse artistic expressions. Listen with your eyes! Watch the full playlist:
