Sheldon D'Silva

Inspired by renowned bass guitarists from Jaco Pastorius, John Patitucci, Gary Willis and Victor Wooten right until Sting’s tasteful bass playing, Sheldon started his career at the age of 12 and explored every genre of music right from pop and rock to jazz, funk and fusion, and still doesn’t believe in sticking to one.
