Brunei’s only drums and percussions show Hundred Beats is making a comeback next month, two years after its hiatus in the local entertainment scene.

This year’s Hundred Beats spearheaded by Kamaloko Entertainment Group (KEG) is set to take the stage at Jerudong Park (JP) Amphitheatre this March 2, with tickets available for pre-order via the group’s social media accounts.

During a press conference held at the Youth Centre today, Kamaloko Entertainment Group’s Head Pg Kamal Ghadafi Pg Hj Suhaimi and his crew members revealed plans on the show next month.

They shared that the concert will have 15 segments to showcase other local performers besides KEG’s talents, with a total of 60 percussionists slated to take the stage.

Pg Kamal Ghadafi conceived the troupe as a platform to develop the musical talents of local artists and spoke on how they had been hosting classes and workshops at the Youth Centre and schools to stimulate interests in performing arts.

The group also revealed plans for an Asian tour announcing the first leg in the Philippines, with Japan, Jakarta, South Korea and Thailand as additional venues, although no tour dates have been revealed yet.

Pg Kamal Ghadafi also hinted at a National Day performance, saying “we will be performing alongside a thousand others in Synergi Belia Wawasan 2035.”

Besides the Jerudong Park Playground and Country Club’s management, Kamaloko Entertainment Group is also partnering with Progresif Cellular to promote the event.

Tickets are priced at $50 for VIP seats, with the remainder at $15 and $10 respectively. They will be available for purchase at Jerudong Park offices and at the JP Amphitheatre entrance during the concert itself.
