As a son to the Iraqi community he absorbed the classic Egyptian dance from his family and from the typical lifestyle of the Middle East.
AT the age of 12 Asi started designing dancers costumes, and since he met a lot of dancers he himself started to dance. In the Iraqi community it is conventional to invite oriental dancers and orchestra to family gathering and events, this way Asi got the opportunity to be familiar with all popular Arabic music in general and with the Egyptian classics in particular.
Since he was a child while watching TV shows and movies he dreamed about visiting in Egypt and this occupation made the dream come true, He flew often to Egypt where he met his favorite dancers Nagoa Foad, Fifi Abdo, Dina, Sohir zaki, Mona El Said and more.
Asi established with them and with tailors and designers that work in Cairo relationships
that last till this day.
