This website was created trough my inner aspirations and the support and guidance of my friends. A long cherished dream of mine to create a website that focusses on world music has finally become a reality. This site is intended for music lovers that have fallen in love with fusion (cross-over) music. Fusion is a music genre where different styles of music meet.
The feeling of the concert ‘Creation of Something Meaningful’ is still lingering in the minds of many people who attended the concert of the one and only Shammi Pithia and his band. The melodious harmony still resonates in the hearts of people we talk to.
It was a night that will be remembered for a long time. The peace and tranquility together with the intense flow of musical melodies created a mix of joy and awe for all that came to the DesiYUP concert the Creation of Something Meaningful. With special guest of honour, Pt. Hariprasad Chaurasia and an amazing audience, this was an exceptional experience.
