Alberto Parmigiani is a virtuoso rhythm player, musician, a Singing Bowl Master Player, and a great friend of Nepal.
He was born in the renaissance city of Milan in Italy and grew up among the finest European art and cultural heritage. Bright and talented, romantic and adventurous, a dreamer and a change maker - Alberto brought new flare of sound and rhythm elements in the Italian music scene at an early age.
Alberto moved to Germany in the early 1990s. Since then he has earned much accolade and fame in rock and samba music world with numerous music albums, live shows, and workshops to add to his credential; not to forget the fourth position he achieved in the Battle of the Band '95 from among 100 tough competitors.
In 2002, Alberto set out on a spiritual and self-transforming journey to the remote regions in Nepal and Tibet. During this time he took his first Singing Bowl lessons from number of masters including his first teacher Santa Ratna Shakya who went on to become his good friend of many years. Alberto soon realised the potential of the Singing Bowl in bringing positive change in people's lives. He blended his artistic insight to the spiritual and healing aspect of the Singing Bowl and set out on a mission to spread positive energy through therapy and concerts with it. He began by opening a Singing Bowl studio, Klangact, in Germany. Soon after he started making numerous workshops and live concerts in Europe with the Nepali singing bowl maestros Santa Ratna Shakya and Shree Krishna Shahi under their name 'Son of Light'. Together they recorded the music album 'Bhaugolic Awaz' followed by 'Dhyana'.
In 2005, Alberto with his two Nepali friends initiated a social initiative under the name of Son of Light to gather help in educating needy and orphan children in Nepal. In 2015/16 Alberto organised the 'We Rock for Nepal' concerts in Germany to raise funds for the earthquake victims in Nepal. Currently Alberto teaches at his own drums and percussion school in Herzogenaurach, Germany and travels to places drumming life back into the world and adding soul to it through the singing bowl sound and vibrations.
