Fareeq el Atrash (whose name is a pun on famed Arabic singer Fareed el Atrache) is a Lebanese hip hop band consisting of rappers Edouard Abbas and Nasser Shorbaji, with John Imad Nasr on bass, Ghassan Khayyat aka Goo on guitar and keyboards, and Fayez Zouheiry aka FZ holding it down on beatbox duties.
In addition to playing three wonderfully laid-back tracks live in the studios of Radio Lebanon, they offered a selection of their favorite tunes, and presented their upcoming concert at Beirut’s The Basement.
