John Kameel Farah live @ Wrong Music Mega Rave 2
“JKF makes light work of blending Squarepusher-esque electro basslines and drum 'n' bass, with deft jazz and classical keyboards” Time Out
"John Kameel Farah is redefining electronica. It's a crazy mix, but has the power to mesmerize" Toronto Star
“Farah's Incomparable music works on a dizzying array of levels and will astonish” Hour magazine
Canadian electronic explorer and pianist John Kameel Farah brings his genuinely unmissable sonic thunder to the UK for a set of dates in Oxford, London and Brighton.
Imagine the best bits of Photek, Amon Tobin, Squarepusher, and Luke Vibert’s Plug alias taken to the next level and melded stylishly with free jazz, avant-garde classical and Middle-Eastern music. Then you’re half way to getting the gist of the mind-blowing John Kameel Farah experience.

John Kameel Farah studied composition and piano performance at the University of Toronto, where he received the Glenn Gould Composition Award twice during his studies. In 1999 he studied privately with revered minimalist/School of Western Music composer Terry Riley in California, and later at the Arabic Music Retreat in Hartford. In 1998, he performed the complete solo piano works of hugely influential composer Arnold Schoenberg in Toronto. Toronto’s NOW Magazine named his as Best Pianist 2006.
Marlon Ben Feld, professor of a music composition and theory at Columbia University in New York said of Farah’s work, "somehow you've merged together different musical cultures that I didn't think could be combined successfully."
Following Farah’s recent storming set at Truck festival in the Catskill Mountains NY, Farah headlines the Hub in Sau Paulo. He will then (no doubt) astonish at Truck’s UK incarnation on July 24th alongside Zinc, Fucked Up, Egyptian Hip Hop, Teenage Fanclub, Steve Mason and Is Tropical.
