They are the Winner of the RWMF Talent Search 2011 held at Kuching Waterfront last year. These 6 young boys, still at College and are coming back this year for a slot at the main stage of the international festival, the Rainforest World Music Festival 2012 next week at Sarawak Cultural Village.
Armed with an arsenal of fierce percussion and traditional instruments, their music is a fusion of old tunes, ethnic rhythms but in contemporary presentation. They are led by Ainal Bustari, the whizz kid who is still remembered for making his debut at the Rainforest when he was only 6 years old.
Between the years of 1998-2008, Ainal Johari joined several well-established bands from Sarawak such as TUKU’ KAME’, TABUH PAK AINAL and JERRY KAMIT & FRIENDS to perform in the world-class Rainforest World Music Festivals. His apprenticeship with these “world music” bands has enriched his experience and musical skills, which he now brings with the introduction of his project band, the “RHYTHM OF BORNEO”.
Catch them on RWMF stage on Friday, 13 July at the annual Rainforest World Music, Festival.
