Last weekend we went with our friends Ad and Brenda to Jakarta for Java Jazz Festival.
It was my first time and it was great.
A huge venue with lots of different stages. Very well organized and very crowded too. Lots of young people.
The artists were amazing. Around 142 foreign and local artists. Well known artists like Chaka Khan, Oleta Adams, Bobbi Mcferrin, Chris Botti and lots more. Also artists I didn’t know before but also very good, we loved it.
I love to show all my photos from Java Jazz Festival but will start to put in the spotlights a very good local Jazz band from Bali. Rio Sidik – trumpet, Erik Sondhy – piano, Ito Kurdhin – electric bass and Edy Siswanto – drums.
In Bali we go and watch them often in Ryoshi house of Jazz. If you are in Bali don’t miss to see this amazing Jazz band. You will love it!
