Having charted no.1 in the iTunes World Music chart with his second album COSMIC, Shammi Pithia is building a solid name for himself as a creative composer and producer and has been performing around the world for the past 5 years.
Making music that is emotionally expressive and layered with narrative, Shammi has attracted the attention of some of the leading artists in his field and has also become a sought after collaborator.
Having previously been commissioned by the Spanish National Dance Company, Shammi recently collaborated with dancer Vidya Patel to create a piece that he and Vidya then went onto perform at the live final of BBC Young Dancer Of The Year 2015 (BBC2) which reached an audience of over a million in the UK alone.
He most recently collaborated with the Sujata Banerjee Dance Company to create a Kathak piece based on the theme of global warming and recycling. After an intensive week of writing and rehearsing they went on to perform in Delhi, Mumbai and Kolkata in honor of Pt Birju Maharaj.
Shammi has performed across the UK and Europe and has also performed in the U.S.A and India. One of his biggest performances was last year along with Sonna Rele and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra where they performed his work at the ‘UK Welcomes Modi’ event held at Wembley Stadium to a 60,000 strong audience and broadcast to 100 million viewers.
