Interview with Fahmil Khan (@musician.fahmilkhan)


Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?

I have always been passionate about music. What started off as occasional strumming on the guitar from YouTube tutorials led to casual jam sessions at local cafes. Things escalated from there and by word of mouth I was given the opportunity to perform at private gigs as well as popular venues around Dubai. It was then that I realised I was getting paid for something I loved doing and didn’t really seem like a chore. Engineering was about connecting with equipment, circuits and technology. music on the other hand connects with emotion and people. That was the game changer for me!
