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.

Satwant Calais, without your amazing efforts and leadership at Sikh Youth Australia, we will not be benefiting from all these amazing programs in Sydney and beyond.

This is the 3rd time that you managed to pull off a tour of the Band in Australia and honestly, the commitment and risk you took on each of this engagements is absolutely commendable.

You were the soul of our trip, working for months ahead on the planning, selecting team members, working with multiple organizations like Sikh Naujawan Melbourne, T4A - Turbans 4 Australia, Australian Sikh Association Inc., Sikh Council of Australia among the very few that we know to get partners and supporters.

Despite your heavy work commitments, you attended almost every performance in Sydney that totaled more than 15. Seeing you engaging with the public with your brochures and donation bucket was a standard sight at every performance.

Thank you for believing in the Sri Dasmesh Pipe Band ( Malaysian Sikh Band ) and giving an opportunity for this young members who made a journey that will define their very lives as they soak in the great experiences and lessons learned during this most amazing tour.

We love you "Uncle Satwant", as you are so fondly know by the band members. ... See MoreSee Less

Sri Dasmesh Pipe Band ( Malaysian Sikh Band )

Etihad Stadium, Melbourne. Never did the band envision to be performing at this location.

Sudip Chakraborty and Avtar Singh of the Essendon Football Club in Melbourne were the mavericks that made this possible. Australian Football is a unique sport that is played in Australia and there is such a huge following. Though it resembles rugby and American football, yet it is totally different and played in an Oval field!

Sundip and Avtar are so deeply involved with Essendon and are trying very hard to get the Indian community to join this very energetic and full of action sport.

We like to thank them for their help in organizing our program and visit to the Etihad Stadium. Your work with Sikh Naujawan Melbourne has left us with some wonderful memories. ... See MoreSee Less

Many persons were involved in our Australian Tour of 3 cities but Prem Singh of Sikh Youth Australia SA takes the prize for the most number of days put in. Since Jan 2018, he worked feverishly with the Band in KL, T4A - Turbans 4 Australia, Sikh Naujawan Melbourne, Australian Sikh Association Inc., Sikh Council of Australia and the many local council authorities to get the necessary approvals for our various performances.

What a mammoth of a task this must have been as I know he was in office every day working till late hours coordination all this.

Than when the band was on tour, from the time he received us at the Sydney airport till the moment we left through security in Melbourne Airport 11 days later, he never left our side, eating with us and roughing it out with the sleeping too. He made sure the band was as comfortable as possible, with water bottles always at hand when we were performing and travelling.

He would be handing out brochures and leaflets to eager passerbyers who would stop to hear who the band was and why we were on parade.

This band trip wouldn't have been so comfortable if not for you Prem. Thank you for making that huge effort so that all off us would be comfortable and be performing at our peek. You are a very kind man.

Sri Dasmesh Pipe Band ( Malaysian Sikh Band )

When Sikh Youth Australia made the decision that Sri Dasmesh has to perform at the political center of Australia, Canberra, it was none other that Amardeep Singh Bakshi and Vickram Grewal who answered the call.

We were astounded with the amount of paperwork these two had to do to get the approvals to perform on the greens in front of Parliament House. I understood the level of stress when Amardeep mentioned that it was not till 48 hours before our scheduled performance did they get the final clearance. What a relive that must have been. Thank you Amardeep and Vickram.

It was an honor to have the Leader of the Opposition, Alistair Coe MLA in attendance as well as Mike Kelly MP. What a surprise to learn that both MP's were knowledgeable about the Sikhs and they have both visited the Golden Temple in Punjab India. Alistair made reference to the very important principles of equality, upholding justice and hardworking attitudes of the community. Both MP's appreciated the contribution of the community in Australia.

Special thanks also to Dr Krishna Nadimpalli, President of Federation of Indian Associations of ACT Inc for you attendance and speech. ... See MoreSee Less

Guri Singh of the Australian Multicultural Organisation AMO - Melbourne has made a special place in history by coordinating and securing the approval for the Sri Dasmesh Band to perform inside the Parliament House (Melbourne).

This was the first of its kind event for the Sikhs and extremely meaningful to the whole Community that builds up a sizable population in Victoria.

Guri worked tirelessly together with Sikh Naujawan Melbourne who were tasked to plan our Melbourne tour by Sikh Youth Australia.

Guri, this is the first time in the 30 years history of Sri Dasmesh Pipe Band ( Malaysian Sikh Band ) that we have had the honor of performing inside a State Parliament House. So you broke 2 records with your one huge effort. Well done and Thank you. ... See MoreSee Less

Our Tour to Melbourne was first triggered by none other than Gurinder Kaur. As they say, the universe comes together to make things happen and after her call to Gurbaksh Singh of Sikh Naujawan Melbourne, everything fell into place to make this most amazing tour possible.

Gurinder is such a dynamic personality and we were blown away by her enthusiasm and energy. She speaks with such strength and conviction that everyone around her becomes a believe immediately.

Gurinder Kaur, thank you for making the tour possible and for the financial support that we received from all the Gurdwara's in Melbourne and the organizations that worked to make Vasakhi a special event at the Federation Square.

Special thank to Andrew Crisp, Deputy Commissioner Victoria Police for presenting the Sri Dasmesh Pipe Band ( Malaysian Sikh Band ) with Momento. ... See MoreSee Less
