The Unlikely Path For A Singer-Songwriter Duo That Led To A Record Deal
FAARROW, formed by singer/songwriter duo, Iman and Siham Hashi, were born in Mogadishu, Somalia. Fleeing their homes to escape civil war, the sisters and their family relocated to Toronto, Canada as Refugees. Early into their teens the sisters identified their music ability but told no one for fear of the cultural taboo. When they finally made the decision to pursue a music career, they moved to Atlanta, Georgia to begin their journey. In Atlanta the sisters began recording and within six short months, caught the attention of Universal Motown. After sometime at the label and no debut, they decided it was time to move on (figuratively and literally). Iman and Siham then made the move to Los Angeles as free agents. Wasting no time, they were back in the studio crafting a new sound. Iman, meaning ‘FAITH’ and Siham, meaning 'ARROW’ gives light to their name, FAARROW. Their music has evolved into a drum heavy fusion of World, Hip hop and Pop music. The sisters have recently inked a deal with Warner Bros Records and worked with their producer Elijah Kelley on their debut EP, 'Lost'! Iman and Siham also serve as U.N. Spokes People with the U.N. Refugee Agency and are actively involved with humanitarian efforts for organizations alike.
