NEW SINGLE FEAT. CALEXICO!

FAREES has teamed up with celebrated Arizona-based Tex-Mex rockers CALEXICO to release a powerful protest-song entitled Y'ALL DON'T KNOW WHAT'S GOIN ON. The two share common ground when it comes to borderlines and mixing different musical traditions. The song features FAREES on lead vocals and guitars, backed up by the raw power of CALEXICO rhythm section and horns. In the lyrics, FAREES focuses on some of the worlds most dangerous and problematic borders and the hardships of immigration in current times.

"You really think you know what it's like to be an immigrant and cross borders? let's talk about it..." says FAREES.

This is the third single from the upcoming double LP BORDER PATROL, due out November 6th.

NEW VIDEO - INDEPENDENCE #D

Filmed in the Kasbah of Algiers, Algeria, (and other historical places of the Algerian liberation war), this video translates into modern breakdancing the many themes Farees evokes and conjure in his song. Algiers, the white capital, was the cradle of the revolution in 1968, where the Black Panthers and Che Guevara, Nelson Mandela, Frantz Fanon, and many other revolutionaries and freedom fighters found shelter and intellectual nourishment. Is that 60's mindset still alive today? What about all of those hopes and dreams for a better future? Listen to Farees' answers to these questions while watching the incredible dance moves and locations.

NEW VIDEO - SAND NI**ER!

New video for Farees' lead single SAND NI**ER!. Animated in 2019 (the song was recorded in 2018), this cartoon addresses explicitly systemic racism, police brutality, Islamophobia, and the stigmatization of minorities. It is a spellbinding and heartbreaking indictment of a system that denies equal opportunity for all. Watch it now.
