There Is Something Incredible About This Percussion Band. Its Members Are Deaf.

Most people believe that the deaf can’t appreciate music, much less make music. However, those people are about to be proved wrong.

This amazing percussion band from Singapore called ExtraOrdinary Horizons is made up of young musicians and singers, all of which are deaf. Watch as they lay down some serious beats in their music video below, called Deaf, Loud and Proud. I had no idea this was even possible!

ExtraOrdinary Horizons was founded by singer Lily Goh, who was a deaf participant in the very first season of Singapore Idol, back in 2004. The aim of ExtraOrdinary is to bring about awareness and knowledge about the deaf community in Singapore to the rest of the world, and help them better integrate into mainstream society and to be accepted for who they are.

These deaf drummers will blow your mind.

The amazing deaf percussion band ExtraOrdinary Horizons laid down some serious beats that inspired Singapore indie band Black Forest to write this song.
