Started in the year 1996, Faya Braz a.k.a Mark Kharradji turned into a professional beatboxer in solo and as a crew member with ART-HIFIS and UNDER KONTROL in France in the year 2006. Over the years he became one of the most important middle school characters in the beatbox scene. After meeting more professional beatboxers in London in the year 2003 he decided with three other french beatboxers to form the group UNDER KONTROL that first won the french beatbox championship in 2008 and in 2009 the beatbox team world championship. After that, the group started traveling around the world with more than 30 countries. Besides his career as a group member in beatbox crews he also launched his successful solo career. Another big competition he won was the 2014 Grand Beatbox LOOPSTATION Battle.
Faya Braz enjoys every side the artform beatbox can reveal. From shows, battles, groups, live looping and soloaction its always his goal to reach the highest possible level in every single zone. After almost 20 years of beatboxing Faya Braz presented many special sides from himself in the variety of beatboxing with his talent and through that he helped to shape the beatbox community as it is nowadays. The swissbeatbox artist week with Faya Braz shows a small package of what the capabilities of this great artist are. To resume his beatboxing style in one word, it would be GROOVE. His second slogan goes like: Faya Braz Shit Is Impossible, that you can order in our SBX Shop.
