About DeafBeat 
DeafBeat is a drum troupe who has performed at several corporate and private functions as well as staged several concerts at KLPac. The Troupe is unique as all the members are deaf and they have overcome their disability through sheer determination and the desire to succeed.

Together with Pusat Majudiri ‘Y’ for the Deaf, CIMB Foundation set up a year-long percussion training programme. This  initiative gave birth to a drum troupe comprising the hearing-impaired individuals called “Deafbeat” trained to play the Chinese drums. It  is  through  the  vibration  of  the  drums  that  they are able to follow the rhythm and beat of the music.

Below are some of the performances done by DeafBeat:-
1) The Hospitality Asia Platinum Award, Nov 2007
