PREMIERE – FAOC releases new video for “Semites Like Us Love Christmas”

Toronto, ON’s well-known and well-loved Arab-Canadian artists Maryem Tollar and Roula Said have a comedic and theatrical side project called FAOC (Pronounced FOWK – Friggin’ Arab Orchestra Company).

Fresh for Christmas 2021, they’ve released a three-track EP of novelty Christmas classicsArab Ladies Sing Christmas Carols Written by Jews, after 2020’s hit single of the same title. 

Today, they’ve teamed up with us, at Canadian Beats to unveil their video for “Semites Like Us Love Christmas (Rudolph)”, a new take on an old classic re-imagined by Maryem Tollar, Roula Said, and Dave Wall – with original musical interludes by David Buchbinder Director and Cinematographer – Valerie Buhagiar Editor – Chantale Viens.

“Semites Like Us Love Christmas” takes the back-story of “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” (written by a Jew about a “different” person/reindeer whose difference causes them to be shunned) and makes a claim for the “rest of us” to be included.

Check out the video for “Semites Like Us Love Christmas” below, and stay up to date with FAOC via their socials.
