Bali Discovery Tours
Ubud Village Jazz Festival is a music festival situated in the artistic surroundings of Ubud Bali, Indonesia.
Since 2010 Yuri Mahatma, a musician/composer/music teacher, and a founder of Underground Jazz Movement together with Anom Darsana, the director and owner of ANTIDA Music Productions, had worked together for some routine projects of jazz concerts, each time with different themes.
In the early of 2012 they conceived the idea of a community concert. With the involvement and support of majority of artist communities, the concept of hosting a community concert in this unique village was born.
