Farah Elle’s childhood was shaped by music, serving as a sanctuary for her to process life’s experiences. Her debut album, “FATIMA,” reflects her journey, drawing from her family’s history in Libya and the universal struggles in becoming a fearless young woman. Farah’s early devotion to music led her to self-taught expression through piano and poetry, providing catharsis for pivotal moments in her life.
Raised in Ireland with strong ancestral ties to Libya, Farah explored themes of displacement and her unconventional upbringing through songwriting. Her debut album is a culmination of close to a decade’s worth of songwriting, combining powerful cadence with captivating cinematic soundscapes.
Having graduated from BIMM Institute Dublin, Farah melds her North African and Irish heritage into a thoroughly contemporary and unique sound. She has performed at prestigious venues like Vicar Street, the Sugar Club, and festivals in Ireland such as All Together Now and Electric Picnic. Recently, she has also begun hosting the TradFest podcast called “TradLines,” out in Autumn 2023. Besides her artistic pursuits, Farah also dedicates time to humanitarian aid work and conducts music and wellness workshops for people of all backgrounds.
