Abiding by the guidelines laid down for the National Day of Mourning and as a mark of respect to all who perished on MH17, we are cancelling our Friday night performance. All those who bought tickets for Friday night will be able to exchange them for any of the other remaining performances including the extra one which we are putting up on Sunday night, 24 August 2014.

HANDS Percussion, a renowned Malaysian percussion ensemble has been creating a veritable bang in the music scene in Kuala Lumpur since 1997 with its ground breaking and innovative performance. The ensemble’s performances has been highly regarded and admired as they endeavour to preserve their cultural heritage while introducing new dimensions to theatrical drumming by venturing into contemporary percussion music and exploring different cultures.

Today, HANDS has 10 full time performers, 18 part-time performers and 14 trainee performers. The performers has been divided into 2 performing group – the original core members, HANDS 1; and HANDS 2 formed in 2005. HANDS Gamelan Group was formed in 2007 when a custom made gamelan set influenced by the Malay and Javanese Gamelan was acquired.
In June 2013, HANDS played an adaptation of Tchaikovsky’s Danse Napolitaine from Swan Lake at DPAC in their fund raising concert for France. It was the first time they played a Western Classical piece on the Gamelan and Shigu.

Now a year later, they have adapted another 9 pieces of Tchaikovsky’s works from Swan Lake, The Nutcracker Suite and The Sleeping Beauty to showcase in this hour long concert in August. In the intimate space of Pentas 2, this concert promises to be another unforgettable enthralling concert!
