Hands Percussion Concert

Decided that we needed a bit of culture this afternoon, so we went to KL's main concert hall, Istana Budaya to see the Hands Percussion Concert.
It has received fantastic reviews and is a modern interpretation of traditional Malaysian music.
We had our photo taken with a drum on the way in, and we sat next to a huge group of overexcited children on a school trip, but they were pretty well behaved.
We weren't sure if we would like it, but the time whizzed by and the concert was amazing, lots of drumming, dancing, and some great and imaginative special effects.
Afterwards, it was announced that the performers would be available to meet the audience, so we quickly made our way over to them. Nobody had asked them for a photo, so I plucked up the courage to speak to one of the silver faced drummers and all of his mates ran over to pose as well. They were all lovely and made a great afternoon very special.
