According to Warner Bros. , after a winding road with many obstacles and setbacks, FAARROW has finally arrived with their defiant anthem, “Lost”.
FAARROW is made up of sisters Iman and Siham Hashi who fused the meaning of their Arabic names Iman (“faith”) and Siham (“arrow”) to create their name.
Born in Mogadishu, Somalia, their mother was a diplomat whose work stationed the family in various countries, including Saudi Arabia and Germany. After the civil war broke out in Somalia in 1991, the family fled their homes to escape the conflict and relocated to Toronto as refugees. It was there that the sisters identified their musical ability but told no one for fear of the cultural taboo in their conservative, “traditional” household.

When the call of their dream became too loud to ignore, Siham and Iman packed up and moved to Atlanta. Within six months, they signed a record deal with Universal Motown, becoming the first female artists of Somali-descent to sign a record deal with a major U.S. label. But as time passed with no release in sight, Iman and Siham found themselves on the move again, this time to Los Angeles to start a new life and new sound.

Their music has evolved into a drum heavy fusion of world, hip-hop and pop music that is influenced by the Spice Girls, Mariah Carey, Michael Jackson, Whitney House and Mika. FAAROW linked up with music producer and actor Elijah Kelley to work on a debut album for Warner Bros. Records.

When not recording, the social-media savvy Siham and Iman are consumed by philanthropic endeavors including their non-profit organization Somalia Lives Again. They have also raised proceeds for humanitarian work through their Wish Creatively initiative, which sells custom, handmade jewelry. Additionally, the band has performed at the World Refugee Day in Tunisia, as well as the UNHCR’s Nansen Awards. Iman and Siham serve as spokespersons for the U.N. Refugee Agency where they remain actively involved with humanitarian efforts.

“Lost” is available at SpotifyiTunes, and Soundcloud.
