Who Is Cymbol?

Cymbol – also known as Shivnesh Sumer – is an up-and-coming recording artist who has been making waves on the music scene with his unique blend of soulful pop, dance and R&B. His music is both uplifting and meaningful with thoughtful and inspiring lyrics against catchy dance beats. 

Cymbal’s original sound combines classic soul, modern pop, dance and a hint of hip-hop. His live performances across Australia and NZ are energetic and engaging, with a strong stage presence and a knack for connecting with his audience. 


Born into a musical family, Cymbol grew up with a guitarist father and sisters who were singers, nurturing his love for composition. He went from winning the George FM (popular NZ dance music station) Remix Competition in 2013 to international collaborations. He also secured a deal with big Australian label Sweat It Out Music (home to esteemed acts: RÜFÜS DU SOL, ‘What So Not’ and ‘Yolanda Be Cool’). 

Record Deal & Festivals

After a series of remix contest breakthroughs and high radio rotation, he struck a three-year deal with Universal AUS/NZ which saw him hit major festivals across the country, including Rhythm & Vines, Electric Avenue and Homegrown.


Singles ‘Burst Of Colour’ (Sweat it Out), ‘Slipping,’ ‘Roll it up,’ and ‘Best Friends’ (which snagged his deal with Universal) maintained his NZ charts and radio presence. Collaborators include NZ’s heavyweight rapper David Dallas on ‘Miss These Days,’ (Distractions LP) and ‘This Pale Fire’ on The Cycle EP. ‘Burn Like Fire’ will be his 3rd single from his solo debut ‘Distractions’ (out early 2023), also including ‘Hanging On’ feat. JANAYAH. 

Additionally, Cymbol has released ‘Nainowale’, his first combination of childhood Bollywood influences with hip-hop. It features two guest vocalists as part of his endless combination of other influences into his unique brand of dance-pop. 

Cymbol has been featured in various music publications and radio shows. His music has been praised by critics and fans alike. His music has a universal appeal and has been embraced by listeners of all ages. Cymbol is an artist to watch out for – he is sure to make a lasting impression on the music industry and we’re interested to see how his musical journey progresses.
