Rainforest Word Music Festival part 3

This is last post from me on the rainforest world music festival, it is the third and the last day of the festival of 2007. It kind of sad that it has to come to and end, but let's look on the bright side. I am so glad that my company actually forced to clear my off days, if they did not do so i would not be there at Kuching attending the Rainforest world music festival.

Let's get on with the flow, the work shop on the third day is heart beats and war dances. Heart beats consist of the percussion instruments from the bands of Shooglenifty, Ensemble Kaboul, Dog house skiffle group, Inka Marka, Tammora, and Aseanna percussion unit. Another hard pounding sound work shop, which i like. The war dances are presented by Black Umfolosi, showing us the traditional war dance from Zimbabwe.

One of the member from Aseana percussion unit by the name Justin Lim, easily recognise by his cool dreadlocks. The girls seem to like him a lot, the moment he starts playing the djembe and the girls starts screaming. Talk about a young handsome lad playing the djembe who have cool dreads, who managed to get the girls screaming for him. Job well done by Justin indeed.

The Black Umfolosi, who is one the crowd favourite from the festival. They taught us how to do the war dance of Zimbawe, the crowds love it or what? they're stomping through the whole way.
All the stomping and pounding, made me and Arthur creating our own music with the floor and we even named ourself "the Percussion floor unit" which you will never see performing.

Here are the line up for the final night of the festival, Anak adi' Rurum, Hussein Arman, Hanitra Rasoanaivo, Khac Chi, Tammorra, Inka Marka, Huun Huur Tu, Aseana Percussion Unit, Dog House Skiffle group, Shannon and the grand finale. I shall rest a bit here, the photos shall do the talking from here.

It's been a wonderful tiring 3 days in the Sarawak Cultural village, it's all worth it. It gave us the opportunity of making new friends and meeting old friends and a couple of celebrities and here they are Adam, Michelle, Richard, Joyce, YC, Alicia, Nor, Christina, Debbie, VJ Marion, VJ alveey, Su ann, Brian Hunny, Anita, sam, and very sorry for those who i might have left out. Once again it has been really great meeting you guys and i hope you to see you guys at the Miri International Jazz Festival and of course the Rainforest World Music Festival 2008. See you all soon!
