He participated and played in many occasions to celebrate the Oud and its cultural influence. Fadi has written and performed a play called Fareed & Frida in Exeter 2010. In the play, Fadi introduced the Oud as an individual character through which the human characters communicated. Fadi also initiated a project called “a musical painting” in which he used the Oud, Piano, Flute, and a singer to produce a musical conversation based on Middle Eastern and western masterpieces. Fadi is also passionate about writing lyrics and composing music, he has written a few songs one of them is a tribute to Mahmoud Darwish (A lover from Palestine). He is currently developing a performing style where he plays the Oud and recites poetry simultaneously.
