Festival Alur Bunyi in five minutes

The first time I heard of Alur Bunyi Festival, I immediately sensed that it was going to become the theme park for musicians and artists who sought to showcase their arts beyond their usual tendencies. Through its organizer, the Festival was able to provide the space that inspired new ideas and cross-genre collaborations. This gave performers the license to experiment and push boundaries and being their authentic selves on the Festival’s stage. It was that quality which made Alur Bunyi Festival one-of-a-kind.
