A project by the Pusat Majudiri Y for the Deaf, YMCA of Kuala Lumpur “DeafBeat” consists of 9 Deaf youths who have undergone many challenges and obstacles in their lives simply because they cannot hear. In spite of their disability, they are determined to “hear” the drums and their perseverance, determination and hard work have enabled them to overcome their disability.
An ongoing project by the YMCA of Kuala Lumpur is part of the YMCA’s outreach to the deaf community. It was formed in Oct 2007 and was first funded by CIMB Community Link.
The funding aimed to provide a group of hearing-impaired individuals with the training and equipment necessary to start a percussion troupe, showcase their capabilities in performing arts and to rise above their disability. The group trained under the guidance of the renowned Artistic Director, Bernard Goh, of Hands Percussion. DeafBeat broke into the world of Performing Arts by staging two concerts at Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Centre (KLPac). The first was “Pulsing Spirit” in the year 2008 and followed by “Sound of Silent Dreams” in the year 2009. The team had further improved in performing arts and moved them forward to a large-scale public performance for a corporate company locally and overseas.
Since November 2007, the group has been giving 121 performances to the public locally and internationally.
With 14 years down the road in drumming and performance for local and invited performance in neighbouring countries to showcase their skills and talents, DeafBeat has identified their need to expand and move forward. In view of these, “DeafBeat” is expected to add more volume and variety to their performance, enhancing drum patterns and sound. “DeafBeat” which represent
