It has come to our attention that Deva Permana faces deportation in 20 days due to the cancellation of his visa by the Migration Review Tribunal. Deva has resided in Australia over the past 11 years. He has made an immense contribution to the Australian music industry and community as an established and accomplished musician and educator. His disciplined work ethic combined with his natural talent and ability has enabled him to grow rapidly in the music education industry and drumming fraternity. For the past six years he has consistently been involved in sharing his unique talents and knowledge with the younger generation through nationally recognised organisations such as Jigsaw Theatre Company, Young Australia and Musica Viva. His exceptional talent as a drummer/multi-percussionist is held in high regard by all in his profession.

His extraordinary talent coupled with his uncompromising commitment and dedication towards his endeavours, are an inspiration for many. We strongly support Deva\'s status to remain in Australia.
