Come behind the music scenes with drummer Filippo Galli, as he ponders with philosophical questions around labelling oneself as an artist, creative expression and following your instincts. Discover how he went from playing on the pots in the kitchen, to a clerical job, to drumming full-time and creating music in the metropolis of London.
“In life we always have challenges and issues, so through art or through music you learn that subconsciously. There is always something that you need to learn and you want to learn because you like it but then you go through a lot in order to reach it. At some point you change your mind about how to approach things and you become better at problem solving.” -Filippo Galli
