Crystal Fighters Honour Fallen Drummer

Late on Saturday Crystal Fighters, who are due to come to South Africa in three weeks, announced with great sadness the passing of their drummer Andrea Marongiu.

Yesterday they announced that they would be establishing a foundation in his name:

Our aim is to provide access to music for young people – and to help them to grow and be impassioned by music in the way Andrea was. This way, through your generosity, we hope that people will have their lives enriched and improved by Andrea, in the same way he made our world a happier place.

The band has expressed insurmountable degree of pain at Andrea’s passing describing him as a “an incredibly kind, fun and loving friend to us all.”
