Siemy Di is a London based drummer, percussionist and composer, exclusively endorsing Liberty Drums, Bosphorus Cymbals and Tycoon Percussion. His fascination with rhythm shaped his musical education as he journeyed through the roots of jazz, latin, rock and African music.
To broaden his cultural depth and musical knowledge, Siemy studied Western Classical Music at the Conservatoire de Musique de Tournai (Belgium) and most recently carnatic rhythm/Indian classical music under the guidance of the mridangam maestro, sri M Balachandar at Bhavan Institute of Indian Music and Art (UK).
These influences were fused together to create a diverse and unique sound to complement Siemy’s signature 4-way coordination and independence techniques showcased through his masterclasses, drumshows and live performances.
