Shammi Pithia is one of the artist that I’m meeting during my stay in London. He is a great creative composer living in London. His vision of what can be done with different sounds of different instruments is worth listening to. His music can be defined as unique audial fine art. One can only understand it once they listen to it.
Shammi Pithia and Suroj Sureshbabu came to The Netherlands to visit the Diwali Festival in Amstelveen. They performed to a crowd of a few thousand people and were able to promote their concert in February, The Creation of Something Meaningful. Here are some snapshots
