Asian Marching Band Confederation, also known as AMBC, is a non-profit organization established to assist in the development of Music and Marching Band Arts in our region. It was founded on 30th April 2016, heads from all over Asia gathered in Shanghai China to form alliance with AMBC. The first set of member countries that supported the organization are China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan and Thailand. The AMBC Board of Directors is composed by Mr. Kosin Suebprasitwong (Thailand) as the President and Chief Executive, Mr. Aiguo Rong (China) Vice-President, Mr. Tri Basuki Soeparowoto (Indonesia) Vice-President, Mr. Paradox Chen (Taiwan) Secretary General, Mr. Sehat Kurniawan Saiman (Indonesia) Treasurer and Ms. Patricia Real Barairo as the Marketing Director, together with Komander (K) Datuk Zulkifli Ishak as the Executive Board Adviser. As of date, AMBC continuously expand on major regions of Asia.
With the span of just one year, AMBC manage to conduct various marching arts program that includes work shop / seminar for music and visual design. We have developed the AMBC Judging System and have become a trusted partner of many organizers to sanction marching band competitions. Some of the successful events sanctioned by AMBC are the Thailand World Music Championships, Shanghai Springs International Music Festival, Jember Open Marching Competition, Borneo Marching Day, International Sumut Open Marching Band Competition and many more. We have different categories under the AMBC Marching Music Battle program; Marching Show Band, Street Parade, DrumLine Battle, BrassLine Battle, WoodWinds Battle, ColorGuard Battle and Individual Battle for solo/duo competition. We aim to provide a flexible range of music programs that best suit the marching bands in the area, but not to give away high standard of a competition. Organizers have wide opportunity to create a unique competition experience in partnership with AMBC, and we work with NO SANCTION FEE! We strongly recognize the positive impact that the pageantry arts and other performing arts have on our community.
AMBC is also recognized by world class organization such as Drum Corps International (DCI), Winter Guard International (WGI), Bands of America (BOA) and World Baton Twirling Federation (WBTF). In fact, AMBC is the partner of WGI – Sports of The Arts in bringing the leading marching arts event here in Asia! The first WGI Asia was held in Sisaket Thailand and Kuala Lumpur Malaysia, consecutively. We are now working to bring more of these international events in our region.
Without the support of people like you, we will not be able to reach our goals. Thank you for supporting AMBC; “The Marching Arts Power of Asia!”
