Feeling a bit camera shy


APU is a renowned World Music Fusion performing group that combines various Malaysian Ethnic Musical instruments together with Western Rhythms in a contemporary style and consider themselves Malaysian Musical Ambassadors.

The Aseana Percussion Unit is a total percussion unit first formed in 1998 when 4 guys got together with the thought of experimenting on blending the sounds and rhythms of different types of drums and percussions. The group has since then grown and now has 11 highly skilled percussionists and musicians as its core members.

If you think the drum is just an instrument that makes a lot of noise - then you have not had the experience of watching an Aseana Percussion Unit performance. The  extraordinary  musical  properties  of  each  instrument  are skillfully  explored  and  combined  as  a  whole  and  the  effect  is  extraordinarily beautiful.

The instruments that are being used, to name a few, are the Brazilian Surdo, Indian Tabla  and  Taviel,  Malay  Kompang  and  Gendang,  Chinese  Drum, Trinidadian Steel Pan, the African Djembe/Talking Drum and common household appliances.

APU’s unique musical style continues to impress local and foreign audience with the  fusion  of  the  musical  instruments  and  rhythm  played  by  multi-cultural Malaysians.
