Music production workshop

Having produced for countless stars such as Selah Sue, Rita Ora, Talib Kweli and Haftbefehl, Farhot has been one of the major names in the pop and hip-hop business for many years. As part of the »Sufi Festival« he is now giving a three-day producing workshop in the Elbphilharmonie.

The Hamburg-based Afghan-German producer is the founder of the »Kabul Fire Records« label and, with »Kabul Fire Vol. 1 & 2«, has released two albums for which he created collages of traditional Afghan music and hip-hop. His workshop is also focused on Afghan music: participants will first attend the concert by the ANIM Ensemble from Afghanistan on Friday, 25 November, followed by a Meet & Greet session with the musicians. Then, over the following two days, they will create beats under Farhot’s guidance – using samples Farhot has recorded in advance with the ANIM Ensemble musicians.

The prerequisites for taking part in the workshop include profound previous knowledge of beat production and one’s own digital audio workstation, which must be brought to the workshop.
