Farid was born to Syrian Druze nobility, the Atrache family, who led the Druze fight against both the Ottomans and the French Mandate in modern-day Syria and Lebanon. He is one of the most important names of twentieth century Arab music. His sister Asmahan was also a skilled singer, though her career was cut tragically short by a controversial car accident.
