Presenting an exclusive interview with Sherry, the main behind the flourishing journey of Gypsy Sounds
The rare amalgamation of a technical mind and an artistic soul gave rise to Gypsy Entertainers three decades back when a mechanical engineer driven by his passion for music lent weddings in the City Beautiful a whole new dimension. Working in the heat treatment department of HMT, Mr B. S. Rishi decided to venture into the Chandigarh’s orchestra scene over a jam session with friends. Although the decision was taken in the heat of the moment, there was no looking back for Gypsy, ever since. Bringing along the best artists of the region, Gypsy Orchestra shined out in the crowded orchestra market in Sector 18-C Chandigarh primarily due to its innovative set-ups, technical sound setting, and equipment.
While the artistry transmitted through the bloodlines, growing up Sherry grasped the technicalities of sound systems and innovative mindset from his father. A born entertainer, he clinched his first prize for singing at a tender age of 7. Sherry took Gypsy Entertainers to the next level by collaborating with the game-changers of the Indian DJ and rap scene. Gypsy brought global Punjabi music icons to the local weddings of Chandigarh and the Punjab region.
