Sheikh Hady Basmeih is very much inspired by his father, Mansur, who is also a musician made popular with the boogie woogie of piano playing. Hady took his first musical steps at the age of 8, by learning the piano from his father. It wasn’t until he was 17 that Hady’s father taught him to play the classical guitar. He honed his skills as a guitarist (classical and electric) developing a unique style that was an amalgamation of his ever expanding musical tastes.
