Bali's born-and-bred Reggae band
It all started with a question: why do we each carry the seed of talent? The answer we found is that it was a karmic gift.
Tell us your story – how did you get here?
Life awareness. Time and experiences brought us into a state of digging deep to our essence… It all started with a question: why do we each carry the seed of talent? The answer we found is that it was a karmic gift. And if one is aware of this gift, and works hard to sharpen it, then great value will follow. As time goes on, awareness expands, as does this value, and amazingly, happiness comes naturally.
Today, we have Armi on vocals and guitar, Martin on the keyboard, Yance on bass and Tole on the drums.
What accomplishment are you most proud of?
Having a space at Ulu Garden for artists to perform original music and explore their true authenticity.
What impact have you made in Bali?
We never feel like claiming such a thing, we just keep playing our role.
What does 2022 look like for you?
We see it optimistically. More and more people and younger generations are finding their awareness and rising stronger after the struggles of the pandemic, so for us, it’s exciting to see.
What do you love most about Bali?
For sure, the culture.
What's the coolest performance you’ve ever seen and why?
A long time ago at the Bali Annual Art Festival, we watched a colossal “Sendratari“ performance. They picked a part from the Ramayana Epic titled “The Birth of Hanuman”. It was very impressive: the choreography, the music, the whole package… the performance focussed on Bali’s art and culture, and it really moved us.
Who is your Local Legend and why?
I Nyoman Sungada, he graduated from elementary school only, but his passion and dedication naturally moves people in art. He is a carver, dancer, painter and a leader.
