Mother Tareka/Tarek Funk is an MC, instrumentalist, producer based in Hamilton, Ontario. His most recent record, Elephants, released under the moniker Mother Tareka and The Rebel Funktion, is a collaboration between a number of talented musicians with a background in jazz, funk, afrobeat and hip hop. Rapping in both Arabic and English, Mother Tareka, injects his lyrics with radical politics. Elephants is thematically packed with calls for social and political justice and enough catchy beats to keep your head bobbing. 

In this episode we interview Tarek about the new album, his musical influences and his experience as a Syrian-Palestinian immigrant to Canada.
