Creating To Tell A Story


Creating To Tell A Story

By Omnia Al Desoukie and Max Al Awaad 

Egyptian Grammy awarded music producer Fathy Salama talks to Communicate on the process of creating his work. Fathy, who is considered the “Godfather” of many of the underground Arab musicians believes that the art of creating is a commodity that cannot be valued commercially. He added that continuous learning and developing oneself is the key to creating more.

Fathy formed his band Sharkiat in the 1980s, after which he has focused his work on traditional Islamic music with a blend of “modernism.” Through his work, Fathy said, he tells a story of his own life and his surroundings.


Note: We spoke to him prior to his concert “Sufism vs Modernism” at NYUAD arts center that was held recently.
