The performances presented by DPAC always involves the exploration of various elements.
Last year, “Spectrum” was very well received by the audience and once again this September over four nights, the Damansara Performing Arts Center (DPAC) will gather renown local musicians for another musical feast.

If nature were a poem, no words could describe how interesting it can be. If nature were a song, then it would awake the happiness of hearts. If nature were a painting, then even the best pen and ink could not describe the beauty that can be seen everywhere.
Modern neuro-immunology shows that “spiritual factors can produce auto-immune and self-healing powers. This function is an instinct for the human body to adapt to the natural environment,” and healing music is able to calm the spirit through ascension effect.

Mohram is Malaysia’s first neo-ethnic duo comprising of flutist Muhardiman Ismail (Mohar) who plays the Malay traditional bamboo, “seruling”, and percussionist Ramli Hamid (Ramli Rebana) who plays the “rebana”.
These two instruments are the core of Malay traditional music. Their music is brilliantly composed with contemporary musical instruments, and this has created a new realm of music for the soul. Each song from Mohram is powerful yet pure and gentle with soothing and original sounds of the Nusantara (Malay Archipelago).
