Navi Mumbai musicians find a way for the deaf to feel the music
October 27, 2016
A group of musicians called Connect have developed a platform where hearing-impaired children can connect through music.
They have created a setup with inbuilt speakers that sends out vibrations. The beats and rhythm are played on Djembe, a West African instrument, and the children connect through the vibrations.
The first trial was at a recent concert where the deaf children were able to relate to the music.
The concert was held especially for deaf children at a school. The band says that being deaf is no longer a reason to stop someone from enjoying music.
