Farid & Fiona
In a generation that emphasizes rather than embraces the age gap, music is probably the last true art form that bridges the “two masses” without being the object of lingering suspicion. Music transcends time zones, continents and cultures, invariably universal in its appeal. I have always loved music from the 50s to the 90s, whatever the genre. Come with us as we invite you to join in a music journey of nostalgic wonderment. Come experience Farid & Fiona, the retro experience.
