    Fareed is simply one of the world's finest guitarists. With several Blue Note recordings to his name, a lengthy festival history with the seminal band Garaj Mahal, and collaborations with countless leaders in jazz and rock, Fareed has established himself as a must-see (and hear) performer. His newest band, Math Games, promises to push the envelope of electo-funk dance bands while respecting the jazz roots from which he comes.

    Born in 1963 to Pakistani father and Chilean mother, extensive travels, especially long stays in Spain, France, Iran, Pakistan and Chile, exposed Haque to different musics from a very early age. This natural eclecticism has become the hallmark of Fareed’s music. Fareed can perform in a variety of settings and ensembles from Jazz Funk Jam super band to stripped down ethnic ensembles or with local chamber orchestras or symphonies. Many folks claim to be well rounded, Fareed Haque is a renaissance man on the guitar– playing all styles from Classical to Spanish to Indian classical to American Jazz and Funk.

      I would love to see Fareed work his magic at the Goodfoot, hands down one of the best guitarists of our time!

      Fareed’s awesome! This’ll help ease the mourning of his leaving Garaj Mahal…

      There are few guitarists in the world with the skill, sensitivity and stamina to do what Fareed does. It is an unprecedented range of styles and influences he draws on to create the unique music that comes out in his bands like Flat Earth Ensemble, Mathgames, Garaj Mahal, FHQ.

      On stage, Fareed does more in a night than most musicians do in a month. Go – Listen – Music is the best.
