I also had the privilege of performing for the legendary Ghulam Ali. I shared the stage with popular artists in the Indian music industry, including Gopi Sunder, Deepak Dev, A.R Rahman's lead guitarist Keba Jeremiah, and Sana Moidutty. It was truly a humbling experience! I was lucky to be associated with the music launch of Baahubali 2 in Dubai and performing at Dubai's prestigious 'Sikka Art Fair'. Opening for Ankit Tiwari at the Yas Mega Mela and being a part of the opening act for the renowned Shankar Ehsan and Loy was an unforgettable experience."
Furthermore, the musician talked about how the current unprecedented times changed his journey. "The current situation changed the dynamics of the entertainment industry, but I have been very blessed to have the opportunity to perform virtually for well-established founding institutions synonymous with art, music, and culture like Sangeet Kala Kendra in Mumbai and Sangeet Kala Mandir in Kolkata that boasts two and a half decades of showcasing eminent national and international talent," says Fahmil.
