Profile

Grammy Award-winner Egyptian musician, Fathy usually appears with his ensemble Sharkiat (شرقيات, "Easterners"). Influenced by the greatest arab classical artists such as Umm Kulthum, Mohammed Abdel Wahab and Farid El Atrache he decided to get involved with music, and started to create his own versatile type music, from playing the piano from the age of six which made an excellent start, soon the child made visits to Europe and to New York to learn Jazz with such great artists as Barry Harris, Sun Ra, Roman Bunka, Malik Osman, Hal Galper and Pat Patrick. Since then he has been touring the world and he has won two prizes for his film sound tracks for Fallen Angels Paradise's and Signs Of April, it is with Sharkiat that Fathy is making his dreams come true of merging modern and traditional music together.
