What to look forward at RWMF2016?

Only a month to go til the 2016 Rainforest World Music Festival! Rainforest World Music Festival,also known as RWMF is a yearly music event that is anticipated by music enthusiast all around the world. People come from near and far to be a part of this music festival that happens in the heart the Borneo Jungle! It is not like any other music events that we've been to. This one is rich in culture and it showcases the different kinds of influences based on the culture from all around the world. 

 

Selamat Datai to Borneo!


what it promotes?

The Sarawak Cultural Village is an award-winning living museum and is nestled at the foot of the legendary Mt. Santubong. The event will be held at the Sarawak Cultural Village for all three days.

The Rainforest World Music Festival is a unique festival that brings together on the same stage renowned world musicians from all continents and indigenous musicians from the interiors of the mythical island of Borneo.
What is unique about this festival is that it promotes different culture from around the world through music. The festival which also includes a variety of food and drink stalls, an arts and crafts section as well as festival memorabilia,souvenirs and merchandise by the performing artists! I believe with cultural festivals like this, you'll not only experience something new but you learn about what cultural diversity is all about and how it actually come together through music. It also allows you to meet new people!


Here's what I'm looking forward to at the end of RWMF 2016

RWMF was always on my list of things to do. I remember the first time I heard about this when I was about 16 or 17 when my cousin attended it. At that time , I didn't know what it was and thought that I was too young. I guess when you get older and you actually appreciate music and it's meaning instead of just the surface of its beautiful sounds, you know it is something that should be on your #bucketlist. Over the years, I've seen RWMF and its workshop and concerts, hopefully by the end of it, I'll not only meet new people from across the world but learn a new dance or musical instrument! Who knows, maybe I'll even get a tattoo there! *sorry ma* This year I'll be going with a few friends and I have a feeling know it is gonna be an awesome one! I've never been to Sarawak before so I am really looking forward to all the local food! I'll try my best to do a video and hopefully it'll give u some insights on RWMF 2016 in case you might wanna go next year! In my next post after RWMF, I'll give you the break down of my expenses on accommodation , food and also the random sight seeings and what not. So stay tuned to that!
Here are some of the pictures of RWMF 2015 so that you know what to expect this time around!*I can't wait*
