Omar El Gamal: Interview

 

The first words that comes to your mind when you hear Inspiration, Passion, and Strength

Inspiration – Life

Passion – Hernan Cattaneo

Strength – My Mom

Who are you? (Answer how you interpret this question)

Easy outgoing person. I like groovy melodic music. I like cakes :)

Why do you do what you do?

Music is the best way for me to express myself. It’s a big part of my life.

When did you know this is what you wanted to do, and what events led you to choose it?

Back in 2006 I went to see Markus Schulz who is a big inspiration for me @ Stereo in Montreal and after that night, I knew this is what I would like to do.

Toughest thing you had to overcome to do what you do? And what/who helped you?

Being an Artist, you have to live with all the uncertainty in your career. Nothing is guaranteed. You just have to work hard and hope for the best. You will find the way some day. My parents are starting to understand that music is my passion, they are supportive of what I do which is a good thing :)

Has anyone/anything ever inspired you to become who you are (to follow your dreams)? Have you ever inspired anyone directly?

Whether its Roger Federer in Sports, Hernan Cattaneo in Music, Steve Jobs Electronic industry, these guys besides having amazing talents, they worked very hard to reach where they are, they believed in their dreams.

One mistake that you made in your journey? How have you learnt from them?

The word journey makes me feel like I am 70 years old reflecting on a 50 years career lol but I am just starting my career, so I am sure there will be lots for me learn. You live you learn :)

Upcoming projects? Plans/goal? (about anything, if you have any)

Always working on new music, trying to make better music all the time. I have some upcoming releases on very well respected labels :)

What advice would you give to other people? (Just about life in general - It could be about anything)

Be yourself, and do your best at whatever you are doing.

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)
