"FAHEM, 28 years old, has developed a style of flamenco unique to him, somewhat jazzy with tones from the Far East as well touches of classical music." We cannot better define the style of this virtuoso, who, should we say, has to the highest degree an indispensable duende (...) the talent of a melodist as well as a harmonist, as the whole of the repertoire, all the songs written by him, overflows in all its splendor (a strong, creative vitality, precision in playing, a sound of an absolute purity, play of fire, marvelous mastery of his instruments)" Furthermore, the quintet wich he directs is in full harmony. The musical arrangements, delicately prepared, are performed with expert precision.
