Louis J Pinto, widely recognised as the iconic drummer Gumby, is one of Pakistan’s most respected musicians for his twenty year strong contribution to Pakistan music.

Gumby, the former child prodigy, has developed a versatility in his drumming that has graced and enhanced music in a variety of genre’s and bands. His work includes a rich selection of studio recordings, albums, music projects and live shows with musicians. His concerts and recordings in Pakistan and on the international front with musicians and bands such as Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Ali Azmat, Vital Signs and Junoon and his residency at Coke Studio since its inception are particularly noteworthy.

Gumby has also made a prominent contribution in the musical education of the youth of Pakistan. In 2002, he conducted workshops at the prestigious Lahore University of Management Sciences [LUMS]. Two years later, he held regular drumming and percussion classes at the education centre L’etude in Karachi. Indeed Gumby was a significant member of rock band Noori which helped define rock music for the Uth in Pakistan. He has also always worked with younger and lesser known artists and to this end has helped to guide and launch the careers of musicians such as Zeb & Haniya, Raeth, Kaavish, Maryam Qizalbash and Saahil. His involvement with Uth Records thus comes as a natural association.

In 2009, Gumby established the eponymous LJP Studios in partnership with Omran Shafique; a state-of-the-art recording studio in Karachi. For Uth Records at LJP Studios Gumby works as a Producer with Omran and the Uth Records team to identify talented individuals around Pakistan, provide them with an opportunity to professionally explore their ability and with the Uth Records televised music show, break into the music industry. Speaking about Uth Records, Gumby has said “Uth Records is a platform designed for the betterment of the music industry and at the same time defining the quality and potential of aspiring artists. It marks the coming of a new breed of musicians and music that the nation has to offer.”
