El-Fashny is known for his improvising performance of mawal, a Middle Eastern form of vocal music.

He came to prominence after he sung the theme song to the 2017 Ramadan TV series Wahet El-Ghoroub. He went on to sing the theme song to the series Tayea.

El-Fashny was also featured on Cairokee's 2017 album A Drop of White, singing on the track Ghareeb, and has also appeared on a few TV programmes and in adverts.

The experienced percussionist started his career as a vocalist and a riq player performing with a number of well-known musicians like Sharkiat's Fathy Salama, the Yehya Khalil band and Ali El-Haggar, playing at various venues and festivals across the globe.
