I Am David Sparkle takes its me from a tongue-in-cheek anglicisation of popular '70s Malaysian disco king, M. Daud Kilau. Its music however, is an entirely different beast. Presently consisting of Amran Khamis, Djohan Johari, Farizwan Fajari and Zahir Sanosi, the band is one of the pioneers of the instrumental post-rock scene in Singapore. Since its inception in 2001, it has garnered a strong underground following in Singapore and internationally with its music and emotionally charged live sets. To date, I Am David Sparkle has played tours and festivals in countries such as Malaysia, Philippines, Vietnam, Hong Kong and the United States.
