Music lovers head for the rainforest

Post date: 2015-08-05

The 18th edition of the Rainforest World Music Festival will be celebrated at the Sarawak Cultural Village in Damai, just outside Kuching in the Malaysia state of Sarawak, this weekend, 7 to 9 August.
The event will feature what is described as world music, songs and stage performances, at a venue close to Damai beach at the foot of a rainforest escarpment that makes up the foothills of Mount Santubong.
Around 8,000 to 10,000 music lovers are expected to attend the evening performances.
Ethnic and tribal music from around the world will be featured at the nightly stage shows with musical workshops and jamming sessions held in the afternoon for world music professional and enthusiasts.

Acknowledging the festival appeal, it was again voted among the 2015 top 25 international music festivals by “Songlines”, a world music magazine based in the United Kingdom. It has been on the list for the last six years.
This international Malaysian home-grown event, organised by the Sarawak Tourism Board, is considered to be one of a kind in the region bringing together on the same stage international and indigenous musicians from the interiors of Borneo.
It is held annually in the grounds of the Sarawak’s living Museum, below the imposing shadow of Mount Santubong and in the midst of a virgin rainforest and stretching its edge to the South China Sea.
This year, the festival will kick off at 1400, 7 August, with concurrent musical workshops featuring various ethnic and near-extinct musical instruments followed by performances on two tree stages in the natural auditorium starting at 1900 through to midnight.
Apart from the music, the festival is famous for its food and village mart, which includes arts and craft outlets set against the setting of the Borneo’s native Orang Ulu and Iban longhouses.
