Borneo Jazz 2011 Wrap Up – Part 2

Being part of the media team, I have to say the organizer took care of us really well. Kudos to Sarawak Tourism Board Media team!!

Press conferences with the performers are usually held the following day after the concert and this allow the media get to know them better.

This year, Musical Meetings add on to Borneo Jazz. It is an informal show where musicians from different group meet onstage and jam together for the first time. This is where you can witness the act of music creation, stories and meet up with the artist themselves.

Day Three
Musical Meetings 1 @ ParkCity Everly Hotel, Miri

The first musical meeting was held at 12:30 noon and it come with a theme of ‘It all starts with the Blues’. Olivier Kikteff of Les Doights de L’Homme, Tom Keenlyside and Michael Creber of Cunha & Piper together with John Hammond were performing. It was a mind blowing performance!

Musical Meetings 2 @ Miri Marriot Resort & Spa
With the theme of ‘Jazz traves the world’, the show began at 3pm. Peter Ng of SIU2, Benoit Convert of Les Doights de L’Homme, Milan Bonger of State of Monc and Dhruv Ghanekar of Dhruv jamming on the stage fabulously. It was really an energetic performance. For jazz music lover out there, it is such a waste for you for not in the moment with us. Seriously!
