Farid El Atrache

Farid El Atrache (1915-1974) (Arabic: فريد الأطرش) was a Syrian-born Egyptian composer, singer, actor, and oud virtuoso. Farid was born to Syrian Druze nobility, the Atrache family, who led the Druze fight against both the Ottomans and the French Mandate in modern-day Syria and Lebanon. He is one of the most important names of twentieth century Arab music. His sister Asmahan was also a skilled singer, though her career was cut tragically short by a controversial car accident.
