Because he could never connect to or relate with his medical peers, he isolated himself, and in that isolation, he found music, his own voice, his unique way of playing guitar. Isolation has shaped his music, his music is very raw, unfiltered and true, it’s something everyone would relate to but wouldn’t admit to.

‘Fazal and the Khandaan’ is Fazal’s project in which he plays his own music live with a bunch of really talented musicians. Every city has its own Khandaan, And for some really weird reason the Khandaan in Lucknow, where it all started is called Khandaan(Maika)
