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.

Listen To A 1,000-Year-Old Song Being Played For The First Time In Centuries

As part of a huge restoration project that has been in effect for over 20 years, researchers at Cambridge University have finally restored a 1,000-year-old song back to its former glory.

This truly beautiful piece of music from the Middle Ages is brought back to life in a haunting performance by Sequentia, a three-piece band that specializes in playing music from this era. Send yourself back in time by watching them play in the video below!

It took more than two decades of painstaking work to nail down the instruments and techniques used to play it.

The song, called “Carmina qui quondam,” is just one of many restored peices from an 11th-century manuscript that was stolen from Cambridge and lost for 142 years.
