Welcome To SaharaMoon's Homepage

a small story of me ...

Hi nice that you found me here :). I'm David. I'm half Austrian and half Egyptian (what a nice mix hehe :P). At the moment I am living in Vienna (Austria) and studying Medicine. Before I was livin all my lifetime in Cairo (Egypt). I started playing the guitar when i was about 10 and i really do love it. Unfortunately I do not have much time at the moment :( but I want to start to play more again. I've grown between oriental and european culture and so are my musical influences. I really like to listen to all, but I love guitar sound :). The name SaharaMoon was an invention of me when I was about 16 years old. I wanted to form a band and I was thinking of an original name which really fits to the kind of music I would like to do. But till now i couldnt make up a band and then I moved to Vienna. Medicine Studies are really very hard and a lot and at the moment I have to work additionaly a lot so that i dont have much time left for myself. I hope to change that soon and maybe one day my dream of having a band or at least own songs will come true.
