Festival Mata Air – 9-11 October, Salatiga

Those of you coming to the fine Javanese city of Salatiga in early October should check out the Festival Mata Air.  A couple of Australian volunteers work for the organization which runs the festival, TUK, and the site for the event is quite lovely.

Apart from anything else, I’ll be DJing there, potentially a couple of times over the course of the three-day event! It is highly likely that while playing I’ll be attired in my soon-to-be-acquired Hanuman (or Hanoman) costume. Hanuman is the Monkey God in Hindu mythology, a character I became familiar with through going to see the abridged version of the Ramayana Ballet at Prambanan with my mate Gibson.

All going well, photos of me so attired and playing will be forthcoming.

I was asked if I had a DJ name and had to think about this for a while.  I eventually convinced myself, after consulting narrowly, that Rewi was the way to go.
