Asia Society Texas Center presents Diplomats of Drum
Through their high-energy global fusion sound, Diplomats of Drum weaves Malaysia's diverse soundscape into a vibrant musical tapestry. This 13-person ensemble will visit Asia Society Texas Center in partnership with Society for the Performing Arts. This performance is the brainchild of Arts Midwest's Caravanserai program, presented in Houston through the Society for the Performing Arts. The initiative will offer three programs throughout the 2014-15 season, from performance to film to shadow puppetry.
Formed in 2005, Diplomats of Drum is a team of young street performers who grew into a popular percussion group. Celebrated for their captivating showmanship, the drummers added melodic folk and pop musicians and evolved into a dynamic band whose core lineup has been creating a unique blend of global music since 2010.
