This event is over.


Go on a percussive journey with Nadi Singapura as they drum up unforgettable original compositions on the rebana, gendang, jidur, marwas, talempong, and more.


Combining the Malay term "tenang-tenang" meaning to stay cool and calm, with the humble local beverage "teh" (tea), Teh-nang, Teh-nang promises to be a blend of cool and the familiar. 


Let the harmonious fusion of music, dance, and song captivate you and experience the power and joy of drumming that Nadi Singapura brings to every performance. A treat not to be missed!
