Sri Dasmesh at the World Pipe Band Championship 2015

The Sri Dasmesh Pipe Band will make history by being the first Pipe Band from Malaysia to visit Scotland. This will also be the first time a Sikh Pipe Band will attend and compete in the World Pipe Band Championships ever since the inception of the world championships in 1930.

The first Sikh Pipe Band was established probably around 1856 when the 45th Rattray Regiment was established in Punjab. Since then, Sikh Pipe bands were part of the many Sikh Regiments that were established under the British Empire.

We continue this tradition and continue to honor all the Sikhs Soldiers and freedom fighters that fought for a free world in many wars including the two great world wars.

Dasmesh Down Under - Final Compilation Video

This year, April 2018, our band was granted a great privilege, to march along the streets of Sydney to honor those that fell in the great wars. The Anzac Day parade is a national level event and is televised to millions of viewers across Australia. We were blessed to March around the parade twice and than a third with the mass bands ! Once leading an Australian regiment and the second time leading the Sikh regiment.

Unknown to many, the Sikh community served bravely in both the great wars and were a major part of the allied forces. More than 80 thousand lost their lives, almost the same number as the Australians losses. Many of them fell to preserve the free world we live in today and we were honored to represent them in the Anzac Day parade this year.

Apart from the Anzac Day parade in Sydney, the bands tour also took us to Melbourne where we performed at some amazing places. Some of the highlights were the performance at the Victoria Parliment House, the Vaisakhi celebration at Federation Square and our finale at the Etihad Stadium!

The tour lasted 10 days but took months of preparation from dedicated social workers (Sewadars). You may have seen the many posts that have been put up over the last weeks to honor these women and men.

These videos, and the amazing pictures of our tour were taken, edited and presented to us by two amazing individuals. Sandeep Singh & Vinny Kaur of JalebiStudio Penang | Jalebi Studio that prepared all the amazing video footage, including this piece! and Jesmesh Jassal from Jesmesh Photography that prepared all the pictures of our tour.

Thank you once again to both of you and a special thanks to Sandeep Singh & TEAM for this brilliant video!

Today.

New Tenor Drums!

After a year of fundraising through shows and donations from lovely supporters of the band, we have finally received our new set of tenor drums!

Just like some airlines have different types of planes from different companies within one fleet, we decided to purchase Premier tenors although our snares are pearls. This decision was made based on our preference of the sound they produce and our experience with them so far, as we've played them whilst guesting with other bands in higher grades than us.

We have many people to thank for helping us make this happen. Firstly, we would like to thank Sri Dasmesh Pitaji, Dhan Dhan Sahib Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji Maharaj, Baja Valey, King of Kings, for always standing by our side and supporting the band and keeping it going. Secondly, the dedicated members of Dasmesh, they've spent weekends, weekdays and all sorts of odd hours dedicated to getting shows to support the band and help it grow and without them we just wouldn't have what we have. Thirdly, we would like to thank our dear friend Barry Gray from Sydney Australia, for making all of this happen and helping us deal with Premier. You have been with us from the beginning of our journey into competitive piping and you have been a blessing.

Sri Dasmesh - turning dreams into reality.

To the Worlds!

Sri Dasmesh Pipe Band ( Malaysian Sikh Band )

It was a historic moment for 2 reasons today. One, the Grand Gurdwara of Tatt Khalsa in Kuala Lumpur kicked of its Centenary celebrations with honoring the family members of founders and senior members of the Gurdwara.

Two, the VIP at the event was none other that the Honourable Gobind Singh Deo, who was appointed as Minister to the newly elected Pakatan Harapan Central Government.

YB Gobind Singh Deo is the first Sikh to be elected as Minister in Asia, outside of India. Now thats a real first.

The band had the opportunity to serve the community by playing at the Gurdwara today, making ourself part of this Centenary celebration and honoring the newly elected Cabinet Minister. ... See MoreSee Less

Jesmesh Jassal of Jesmesh Photography and videographer Sandeep Singh of Jalebi Studio Penang, you will go down in history for the amazing work that you did for the Sri Dasmesh Pipe Band ( Malaysian Sikh Band ).

Jesmesh, from the days you were a member of the band, you have remained steadfast as a firm committed member and without your photography service of travelling with the band to document our trips, thousands will not have had the opportunity to know and follow our activities.

We could never afford both of your professional services and can only offer you our gratitude for your professional services rendered for FREE. This is the highest respect we can offer you.

Yes folks, these two men are outstanding, they committed almost 2 weeks of their time to the band. They were up before most of the band members, got their equipment ready and started shooting while we prepared for the engagements.

After the shows, while the rest of us would be resting or engaging in leisurely activities, they would be busy editing the pictures and videos and uploading them, while charging their gadgets for the next day.

Literally every night, they would be among the last to sleep as editing the pictures and videos is a slow and time consuming job. The results were absolutely stunning, the angles, the details, the high awareness of the surroundings and capturing details that we all missed.

Such professionalism and dedication was displayed by these young men. You two are simply awesome. ... See MoreSee Less
