The RainForest World Music Festival

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.

Its formula of afternoon informative workshops, ethno-musical
lectures, jamming sessions and mini concerts, followed by evening
performances on the main stage has proven to be a hit with the
audience, who come from near and far.

The festival site also sets up a variety of food and drink stalls, an
arts and crafts area as well as a counter for festival memorabilia,
Sarawak souvenirs and CDs by the performing artists, all this
contributing to a fun filled, wholesome festival experience.
World Music plus a country fair atmosphere in the midst of lush

The Rainforest World Music Festival, a not-to-be-missed occasion,
guarantees a smashing time in the heart of the
Borneo Jungle !

This Festival is held every year around this time of the year, at The Cultural Village in Kuching, Sarawak. As you can read above, it's a Festival which combines musicians from all over the world. Each group of performers represent their country to present their best country song, which have their own uniqueness.
