Short Summary

I’m Zephyr Khambatta and I make music for a living.

I have spent the last three years working with countless amateur, semi-professional, and professional musicians, learning about what it takes to produce original music commercially. Before that, I did a 4 year long music degree.

I want to make as much music as I can in my lifetime that talks about life and helps people with their own lives, be it for a moment of dancing happiness, a week of mourning a lost one, or joy/sympathy forever on their travel playlists in their collections.

Donating to my music video(s) will help to crystallise the message I send with each song, and more importantly, reach the under-privileged, or not very well educated people in both developing and under developed countries as a YouTube link can be quite easily pulled up by anyone. Services and apps like Spotify, iTunes etc? Not so much. Even my own maid is a YouTube pro!!! :)  My aim is to reach everyone, regardless of their social standing or income or knowledge of electronics, and after a large amount of research I think YouTube would be the way (for now at least, till the next big video platform comes along).
