Rainforest World Music Festival 2011



Malaysia / Sarawak

The rhythm of Borneo fills the air. The 14th edition of the Rainforest World Music Festival 2011 has arrived in Sarawak, bringing together renowned musicians from across the globe and indigenous musicians from Borneo on the RWMF 2011 stage.

For an enchanted music experience, I’m here in one of the world’s most diverse and protected eco-systems to attend the RWMF at the Sarawak Cultural Village in Kuching, Sarawak. Invited by Sarawak Tourism Board, it’s my first time to set foot on this magical land!

During the 3-day music festival, world class musicians and performers of different races and cultures, from Europe to Africa, from the Middle East to Asia and Oceania, will showcase their talents at informative workshops, jamming sessions and evening performances.

“Different tribes. Different Tongues. All come together to celebrate one thing. Music”

The Rainforest World Music Festival 2011 Opening Ceremony at Kuching Waterfront City Centre.


People around me are raving about RWMF. Many are here again to immerse in the dazzling music festivity in the heart of Sarawak. I’m excited!

A mesmerizing view of Kuching Waterfront.

    @Jane: I was there for 3 nites. It was great.
    @Cathj: That’s a prominent building at the waterfront in the city of Kuching. I think it’s a govt admin building.
    @Ben: So I guess you will attend it again next yr.
    @Richard: Thanks for popping by! Yeah, maybe I will too!
    @Thristhan: Thx. It’s a yearly event, don’t miss it next yr. :)

    Hi Eunice,

    After reading your travel folio blog on RWMF 2011 in Kuching, Sarawak, I’m very attracted to attend it in 2012. Is it the same period July 8 to 10 in 2012? It would be helpful info for me to book the air ticket and hotel in advance. Thanks.
