HOUSTON, Tx. — Multicultural unity comes to downtown Houston, courtesy of Malaysia’s Diplomats of Drum. A 16-member percussion group that celebrates the various cultures of Malaysia.
“The idea is, one drum, one sound. In the community drum circle there is no distinction of who you are, where you come from.” explained Rav Singh, Diplomats of Drum’s leader
“Something like a drum circle pulls everyone together and reminds you of being in a community. If you do something together, you can do something beautiful. We’ve got Christians, Muslims, Buddists, and Hindus all playing together, now that’s something you don’t often see” added Satpal Dhillon, the group’s manager.
Using a variety of drums from around the world Diplomats of Drum invites the local community to join in.
“The drum is a heartbeat. The drum represents the beat of every man’s heart, every woman’s heart.” said Dhillon
To experience Diplomats of Drum, join them Thursday night at Asia Society Texas, starting at 7:30pm. More information is available by clicking here.
