If the youth are the heart­beat of our nation, then the future of Sin­ga­pore cer­tainly seems (or more accu­rately in this case, sounds) bright. Cur­rently away rep­re­sent­ing our nation in Korea for the 2011 World Per­cus­sion Per­form­ing Arts Fes­ti­val, Rhythm De Pasión com­prises of indi­vid­u­als from dif­fer­ent walks of life and a vari­ety of musi­cal back­grounds. Through their infec­tious beats and ener­getic per­for­mances, it is no won­der that the band has made a name for them­selves in the local music scene. - Rediscover.sg


"a work of art,exhilarating performance,inspiring to teenagers"
- Fadhilla Kamarul - Suria News


Busking or street entertainment. That was what the group Rhythm De Pasión has been known for. They are an eleven-man group from Republic Polytechnic. Due to their enthusiasm and with their eye catching performance, they never fail to stop passer-bys on Orchard Road to catch them performing.

What used to be a norm was, those who busk or entertain others on the streets are those who did it to earn money and for them, this was the way of life. However, these days, more and more groups such as Rhythm De Pasión have started to do the same but they did it not for the money, but for their passion to entertain.

The busking scene in Singapore isn’t something new. Currently an increasing number of teenagers have been involving themselves in street performance as this can also be a platform for them to express themselves. For sure this is something that could nurture, blossom and could create a creative and enthusiastic community which is normally found in big cities such as London and New York.

Breaking into the music industry and getting gigs can be tough on new bands. But these days, some are turning to busking to showcase their talent.

Take percussion group Rhythm De Pasion, an 11-member group with members aged 18 to 24. Formed in July 2007, the group started busking in January last year. Through their street performances, they have been hired by band managers and event organisers for corporate and private gigs.

These experiences have boosted their confidence so much that they are recording their first EP later this year.
Band leader Husain Mohamed Arip, 20, a sports management student at Republic Polytechnic, says: 'We don't busk for money, since we never get very much anyway. But we do it because it's great to see people enjoying our music. It spurs us on.'

In fact, the group will be busking more often this year because the recession has meant fewer gigs.
He says: 'We had about one gig per month last year, but nothing so far this year. We plan to busk more to promote the band.' - The Straits Times
