WA-based Arno Faraji today announces his debut Australian FARAJI SZN headline tour. Stopping off in Adelaide, Melbourne, Perth, Sydney and Brisbane, the 18-year old rapper will play Cats at Rocket Bar, The Workers Club, The Sewing Room, The Lansdowne Hotel and the Black Bear Lodge this August. See full dates and details below.
The tour comes off the back of a busy year for Arno Faraji who shared a winning run of singles including ‘things change’ last November and his more recent single ‘Scalin’ co-produced by Milan Ring which saw full rotation across triple j, FBi Radio and praise from the likes of Sniffers, Pilerats and more for his own take of quick-witted, thoughtful rap and diverse soundscape. He’s also been keeping the mic running, touring alongside Kwame on a national run of shows and six-Australian dates with Cosmo’s Midnightincluding sold out nights at the Enmore and Forum Theatres.
