Our friends living in East Bali asked if we would like to join them to Ubud Village Jazz Festival 2014. Because we love Jazz music very much we decided to go with them.
It was the 2nd UVJF and the location was again at the Arma resort & museum. It’s an amazingly, beautiful venue.
The UVJF lasted two days. At the festival were 3 stages on which 100 musicians played their jazz tunes. Two music clinics, several food and drink, clothing, music cd’s and music instrument booths.
We were very exited because for us was it the first time we visited a Jazz festival in Ubud. Most of the artist we didn’t know but we loved the idea to see and hear Jazz music performed by international musicians from over 8 countries, including some brilliant (young) Indonesian talents as well as some Dutch musicians.
We had a great time. The weather, food and drinks were great, but most importantly there was excellent jazz music that we enjoyed together with our friends.
A wonderful experience and we are definitely going again next year.
