People, I don't mean to offend any other musician in Maldives, but I would say no one comes close to Fasy. I mean this guy rocks... He rocks... I think even in this region there will be a few guitar players who can play like him.

I went to Fasy's concert with Simon and Mohamed. Simon use to be in the same band as Fasy back in the early 90's. I use to go watch them play those days. I always loved fasy's music. No one even then played like him. He proved his point again last night. When he played the songs from 12 years back... The songs like blue tears, final revelation, painted in black are songs they use to play back in 1993/4. Even as of today, I have not heard any maldivian music, close to them. Well, maybe one or two. But these were songs done 12 years back. I don't think many will remember them or will know those songs. But it sure did make me, kinda trip way back in to the 90's. I was really happy to see him perform again. Been a long time, last was in KL (Malaysia), when we use to go to this pub where Fasy played. We were in the same class and house mates back then. It was an honor to know this guy.
I have not seen such a good support from the audience in Maldives, at a show. I know everyone enjoyed the music and was happy to know Maldivians can rock and roll too. I know there are very good bands, but I would have to say that Fasy was exceptional. His music is really good.
