Abstract

Physical literacy can be defined as having an individual’s mind and body in a state of harmony. Previous studies introduced circus arts and actor training as a way to encourage physical literacy. The present paper aimed to introduce new ways and possibilities in endorsing the promotion of physical literacy, through the extensive use of 24 Season Drums. The study would further explore how 24 Season Drums, a musical performance originated from Malaysia, can enhance one’s physical embodiment development. The manuscript also covers the method of training carried out in Universities Sains Malaysia Kubang Kerian (Health Campus). The literature search was performed using databases from PubMed and Google Scholar search engine using specific keywords, ranging from January 2000 to June 2021. We hope that this paper could pave ways for more future studies on the effects of 24 Season Drums training in terms of an individual’s physical and musical literacy.
