Event Partners

 

Delly Florentini

Delly Florentini is a 19 year-old student from the Dayak Simpang tribe. She is from a traditional Dayak community in West Kalimantan. Having just graduated from high school, she is now studying in Jakarta.

Delly is a talented sape player and dancer. The sape is a traditional Dayak Instrument, the music is smooth and elicits the sound of the nature.

She is also a volunteer teacher at a "sekolah adat" (school of traditions) which helps indigenous youth care about their culture and traditions. She also promotes and shares Dayak culture and media through videos on her social media.

Delly will be performing a solo accompanied with traditional dance and then will collaborate with DJ Halim fusing her traditional sape with contemporary hard pounding beats.

 

Dessy Plorentina 

Dessy  is a proud Dayak Simpang from Kalimantan. Born in 1996 in Balai Semandang village, her love for the village kids and indigenous knowledge drive her to establish an informal educational movement to connect the children to their elders.

In 2014, she started a class to teach about traditional medicine, stories, music and dance, traditional games, traditional food, ways of life, philosophy and cultural values, and ritual performance as well as foundational skills such as reading and writing.

3 years later, the movement is legalized under the name "Sakolah Adat Arus Kualan" with her colleague Modesta Wisa who runs the movement in the other part of West Kalimantan.

A "sakolah adat" or "school of traditions" is a forum in which traditional leaders and young people connect to pass on  traditional Dayak knowledge.

"We seek to nurture independent, creative and intelligent indigenous children in the modern era while still carrying and maintaining their identity as indigenous people. We want young people to be proud of our customs and culture."

Dessy is also an accomplished Dayak traditional dancer, singer, and musician and will be performing at the event.

 

Prabumi 

The name ‘Prabumi’ can be interpreted as man in his original state. Prabumi is a movement that aims to reunite and remind people through music that we are one, we are the same.

Prabumi might be Indonesia’s most talented producer out there, definitely a national treasure with all of the hard work he puts into integrating Indonesian traditional instruments and earth sounds in his productions.

We will show Prabumi's mind-bending video/music production which fuses traditional music and dance with dance club beats and electronic music.

 

Halim Ardie (DJ Halim)

One of the most thoughtful and talented residents in Bali, eco-conscious warrior and Rainforest Pavilion co-founder, Halim is on a mission to change the world through the power of electronic music, raising funds and spreading awareness one dancefloor at a time.

"As a DJ, I have developed my sound to showcase the diversity of Indonesia, and especially show off the amazing productions of my insanely talented producer buddies! For me that’s the role of a DJ, being a tastemaker and trendsetter but why follow the trends of Europe when Indonesia has some innovative and mind-bending sounds coming out of here?”

 

David Metcalf

David Metcalf is a resident of Bali, an author, film producer, professional photographer and specializes in photos of indigenous peoples around the world, in particular Borneo and Bali.

He supports educational, literacy projects in Kalimantan and creates large indigenous gatherings in Indonesia.
