Suara Festival returns for its second year on May 13th and 14th to Tabanan’s impressive Nuanu, celebrating a special collaboration with the Balinese illustrator, Monez, amongst others. Born and raised in Bali, this talented avant-garde artist plays joyfully with traditional Balinese elements to create the identity of Suara in 2023.
Suara Festival is a two-day independent cultural, arts, music & education festival celebrating Balinese culture and will take place on May 13th and 14th, 2023 in Nuanu from midday, 12:00pm to midnight. The festival, which is focused on inclusivity and community building, aims to bring people from all walks of life together to share and connect.
Nuanu and Team are thrilled to be hosting the Suara Festival again this year and to also be celebrating the ‘sound of Nuanu’. They believe in bringing people together to connect and learn from one another. Suara Festival is open to everyone who wants to celebrate and learn about Balinese culture. Festival-goers can expect a range of activities, including music performances, art installations, workshops, and talks.
The year’s programming features a carefully curated lineup of well-known, influential artists and up & coming talents: from Jazz to Soul, R&B to Rockabilly, and Singer-Songwriter to Ska. In addition to their fantastic musical lineup, Suara Festival ‘23 also features a diverse group of esteemed speakers. These individuals have dedicated their lives to making a positive impact on the world through their work, and each talk promises to be both inspiring and thought-provoking.
Suara is the dream of people inspired by the values reflected in the Nuanu Principles (the space features 9 areas of ‘re-creation’), and who are united in the pursuit of creating an ever-evolving, regenerative living systems game. It integrates ecological harmony and community connectivity, bringing experiences to people by being inspiring and joyful with the aim of solving social problems with a sense of culture.
Suara and Nuanu are creating a cultural space where diversity and inclusion are welcomed and celebrated.
