Drum Band in Singapore (Orchard)

Going to Singapore and exploring the city for a few hours each day lead me to learn a few things.  On weekends, in Orchard, there is a lot of music being played on the streets and a few interesting street performers.  They do everything possible to entertain you and on one afternoon, I was lucky enough to catch a bit of a drum performance.  The group had a LOT of people and they used every form of percussion I could imagine.  Of course they used traditional modern percussion tools, not Japanese taiko, or other equipment.  You can watch a portion of the show below.  They kept this up for a long time as I’m sure they were playing for at least 30 minutes and it was basically a free concert for everyone.  It was great entertainment and it shows that you just never know what you’ll see when you are travelling in any city.
