Beat drummers live in concert 2016

Drummers are better known for their beats than their brain power, but research has suggested that they might actually be natural intellectuals. “Sachintha & Beat Drummers” who are one of the youngest percussionists in Sri Lanka have proved this statement to be just.

As their name suggests, their music has everything to do with sound and rhythm.Playing only percussion, the band has a unique sound, with a Sri Lankan flavor as well as traditional Indian, African and Latin Music.Founded by Sachintha De Silva in 2008 “Beat drummers” have been in the music industry for morethan 12 years along with his 24 member ensemble joining in. Beat Drummers have been created by a set of individuals who are no strangers to the field of drumming, who have used their talent to initiate many youth programs for the wellbeing of the local community.

“We played at a few gigs and functions – this is what brought us into the limelight. Since this is a niche market we don’t try to lose our standards and go to the general music space.Still, we have a highly satisfied fan base around the world who love our music and who have been absolutely awesome throughout the years” stated Sachintha.

Since coming together as a group they have participated in a series of events both at national and international levels.

“We draw our inspirations from Master Ravibandu Vidyapathy and famous international music composer Yanni.Through some of our experimental drumming techniques in percussion and acoustic we have discovered diverse styles that we have added to our repertoire, thus raising the bar to what we hope would be international level.”He added.

“Beat drummers live in concert”; their third percussion concert will be held on Friday, the 25th of March at the Bishop’s College Auditorium from 7 pm onwards.

Canadian violinist Eugene Draw; one of the fastest violinists in the world will be brought down along with world renowned Sri Lankan-guitarist Anthony Surendra to be featured at this vibrant concert.

As Sacintha describes music as an element which has no boundaries or frames the event itself would be a fusion of many cultures.It would surely be a fresh new experience to the Sri Lankan music enthusiasts where they would witness the sound of number of drums all across the globe during the evening.
