I must have been five years old when I got my hands on my dad's collection of cassettes which had all the major hits songs from the 60s and 70s. I remember being specifically attracted to the music of Cat Stevens, The Beatles and Neil Young. I am an amateur musician from Winnipeg, Canada, just starting to find my footsteps in songwriting.
Tarek is an amateur musician based in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. Tarek is of Palestinian roots, and he grew up in Lebanon. He writes about deeply personal yet universal topics such as war, injustice, love, loss and grief. Home, the album, is his first music release at 40 years old. Tarek held a guitar for the first time in 2018, so this release was a monumental achievement for him, especially having written, played (except for bass on a couple of songs), recorded and produced the record on his own.
