Born in  Mogadishu and raised in Toronto,  sisters Siham and Iman Hashi a.k.a Faarrow (a combination of their names’ meanings translated from the Arabic: “faith” and “arrow”.) are definitely two to look out for.  I don’t have much information on them at this point but after finding out they’re currently working on new music with producer  extraordinaire No I.D and are about to release an EP, I cannot wait!

In the meantime, check out this extremely creative mashup of Katy Perry’s Wide Awake and and the Kanye West, Jay-Z and Frank Ocean track ‘No Church In The Wild’.
