Not one to waste time, Nabil continued to practice and learn on his own, as well as from the great recordings of Western jazzmen such as George Benson; John McLaughlin; John Coltrane and Pat Methany to name a few. In addition to learning from his favorite recording's, Nabil took his educational wishes a step further when he sought out the famous lute player Ali Sriti for several private master classes. In 2004, Nabil decided to create a hybrid instrument which would allow him to share his true musical voice and vision that he was hearing deep within his soul. So after several years of research and development, Nabil's artistic vision paid off when he completed his one of a kind double neck lute/guitar instrument which he aptly named, "RayJam". This unique instrument, allows Nabil Khemir to explore and share his musical playfulness by having an electric lute and electric guitar within grasp at a moments notice.
Not to go unnoticed, Nabil Khemir was recognized and decorated with honors by the President of the Republic of Tunisia for his cultural contribution to the country and its cultural heritage for his artistic vision in June of 2007. Currently Nabil Khemir continues to garner new fans in Tunisia and around the world with live performances, as well as with the release of his debut CD on Blue Canoe Records simply titled, "RayJam".
