Musician, humanitarian and filmmaker
A musician with a cause, Michael Franti is globally renowned in the entertainment industry, not only for his soulful tunes, but also for his long term humanitarian work for global causes and movements. Together with his guitar and band, he puts himself out there to spread optimism and peace to the world. As for his connection to Bali? He built his home right here on the island – in the breathtaking surrounds of Ubud – with his wife and baby soulrocker, Taj. In 2011, he co-founded Soulshine Bali, a barefoot luxury resort where he and his partner run musical yoga retreats. Here, you get to find peace through yoga and rock n’ roll music – yes, opposites really do attract!
“Our goal is to create a place of happiness where you can come to relax, play, eat great food and just get back to being yourself.” – Michael Franti.
