The Aseana Percussion Unit is a percussion unit that was 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 to 10 highly skilled percussionists and musicians. Often backed by a keyboard and bass, the other ‘instruments’ used are, generally, the Brazilian Surdo, Indian Tabla and Taviel, Malay Kompang and Gendang, the Chinese Drum and Erhu, the Trinidadian Steel Pan, the African Djembe and common household appliances.


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