Marc Fischer founded the Siamgda project in the spring of 2001, at the foothills of the Himalayas near Kathmandu, Nepal.
It was there that he came to hear about a music university in an ancient Newar settlement of the Kathmandu Valley,
And was introduced to the amazing sound of the Indian „Tabla“ drums. He knew immediately and beyond doubt that he
wanted to learn to play these drums and eventually cross new musical boundaries. He went back home to quit his job
and sell off his belongings, soon returning to Nepal.
After several years of dedicated training in Indian classical music, throat singing, Sanskrit and Tibetan mantras
with different teachers around India and Nepal, Siamgda started to create music in his own experimental and unique
style – a blend of tribal drumming, ethnic sounds, electronic noises and Eastern influences.
Marc Fischer founded his own label – Mind Plug Records – where the first Siamgda albums were released in digital format.
Siamgda joined the German label Ant-Zen and so far, released 4 CD’s with them.
After many years of living mainly in Asia, Siamgda decided to move back to Berlin for a couple of years, where he
currently resides and works on a couple of projects.
Siamgda joined the German label Aufnahme + Wiedergabe and released the first 12″ EP with them.
