Sri Dasmesh at the World Pipe Band Championship 2019


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.

A statement from the Pipe Major.

Dear all,

As we’ve heard, many rumors are making their way across Scotland and our region that a Malaysian band will be making its way to Scotland again this year. It is my pleasure to confirm that these rumors are true, Sri Dasmesh Pipe Band will be making a return this August for the World Pipe Band Championships.

We shall be competing in Grade 4B once again at the Worlds as well as a couple of other competitions leading up to the big weekend.

We are making this long and hard journey, not as a trip holiday, but to compete, to the best of our ability, at the Worlds.

We understand that at first sight, our bright white uniforms with bright colored accessories and glistening buttons may give off the idea that we are a “show band” and not competitive in nature. It is simply not true. We are a competitive band and have been since 2013. During our last tour of Scotland, our Drum Corp placed first in 3 out of the 6 times we competed (including the Worlds Qualifiers) and second at North Berwick. By Gods Grace, we also qualified to the finals of the Worlds.

Members of our band have also played as guests in both the Australian National Championships as well as the Worlds. Members of our band made up a large number in the Hawkesburry Napean Valley Pipe Band (Now known as the Governor Macquarie Memorial Pipe Band) when they won the Grade 4 Australian National Championships in 2014 and when they won the drum Corp trophy at the nationals in 2016.

Our Drum Sergeant Tripert Singh, Mid Section Head Sukhpreet Kaur and myself also had the amazing opportunity to play with Coalburn IOR in the competitions leading up to, and at the Worlds in Grade 3A in 2016 and 2017. There, we were honored to be tutored by then Pipe Major Donald Williams and Drum Sergeant William Kerr.

We have taken all these experiences, including our own at the Worlds in 2015, and spent a lot of time to build a strong team to come back to the Worlds this year. We hope that our uniforms and the ‘visual effect’ we have, won’t take the stage away from our music.

We wish all the bands competing this year, all the very best, and hope that we get to learn as much as we can by watching you and listening to you whilst we are over in Scotland.

We look forward to seeing all of you at the competitions and giving big hugs to old friends and acquaintances alike.

Lots of love

It was our great pleasure to host the amazing young people of Morrison's Academy at our band practice last weekend. It is part of our Malaysian and Sikh culture to treat guests with respect, food and lots of smiles. We had a great time and we are sure they did too.

Another long lasting friendship built! That’s the magic of music and love
