This Sign Language Interpreter Stunned The Audience With Her Enthusiastic Translation

Metal concerts are well-known for creating buzzing energy among the crowd. Songs are often laced with head-banging chord progressions as well as an overall sense of aggression. It is not uncommon for groups to push and shove while listening to the metal band.


Lots of metal concerts are famous for an activity which has been termed ‘moshing.’


This happens in the ‘mosh pit’ area where the crowd is full of energy and moving around with plenty of body contact. This usually happens in front of the stage.


One of the last things that somebody may associate with a metal concert is sign language. This method of communication used only hand and facial signals. It was developed for those that are hearing impaired. While a majority of tv shows and speeches usually come with a sign language translator, most people would not expect the same at a metal concert.


However, the music is not the only aspect of metal concerts which is attractive to people. Several hearing-impaired metal fans go to such concerts to feel the overall excitement and energy.


Fortunately, there's usually a professional at the concert to translate the lyrics of the song into sign language.


There were three translators totally who were on-rotation that night during Lamb of God’s six-hour set. Since no other videos of the other translators went viral, it's safe to assume Lindsay gave the best performance that night.


Ibarra, the person who filmed the translation, was standing near a group of deaf people during the concert. He was impressed with how much this part of the crowd was enjoying the music and the translation. Ibarra admitted to having seen translators at other gigs, but none as passionate as Lindsay. He said that the experience was quite emotional for him.


The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 was passed to ensure that deaf concert-goers are always provided with an interpreter. All concert venues are required to have translators onsite for the hearing-impaired. These music venue translators don’t merely translate the lyrics of a song in to sign language. Instead, they try to capture the energy and movements of the artist and song into their interpretation. This is precisely what Lindsay provided in her passionate rendition of the song.
