Born and raised in Saskatoon, Satnam Ramgotra brings 30+ years experience to the Hollywood landscape as a studio musician for film and television, composer, and percussionist for world-renowned artists. Blending his training in Indian classical music with modern percussive styles allows him to be innovative within a wide array of genres from punk and funk to classical and jazz. Ramgotra says, “I have an instinctual ability to capture the colour, style, and emotion of what is intended to be created musically.” Along with the ‘A-list’ of commercial composers, he collaborates with many house-musicians at Hans Zimmer’s Remote Control Productions on projects such as The Lion King 2019, The Dark Knight, and Black Hawk Down, as well as a co-composer on Dunkirk, just to name a few. His versatility in the industry has allowed him to perform, record or tour with artists like Beck, Sting, Pharrell Williams, Macy Gray, Shakira, and make appearances on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and the 84th Academy Awards. You may have also heard his work on A&E, Discovery, Epix, Food Network, History Channel, MLB, NFL, and NHL Showtime, and networks as a composer for the boutique music library house Extreme Music.
