1st Annual BALI WORLD MUSIC FESTIVAL

It's no easy task putting the world on stage. For over 30 years of my musical journey, I've tried to remains constantly in search of new musical ground. I can see the Big Picture, we must bring cultures together with passion and visionaries from various fields to tackle global problems.
If we don't pass international music and inter-cultural vibes onto future generations, it's in danger of being lost forever, then we will lost our roots.
Bali World Music Festival will Share, Perform and even Learn Music From 5 continent, from a diverse range of cultures.

One good piece of music with a message can bring a point more deeply to more people than a thousand rallies.

Kamal Musallam, the founder of Arabic Fusion bands Kamal Musallam Trio and EastMania, has been expressing himself through music since the age of 3. Originally from Jordan and born in Kuwait in 1970, Kamal’s parents encouraged him to learn both arts and music. He started out playing the piano and the accordion and then picked up the guitar when he was 9. He finished his studies in architecture in 1994 to pursue a Master in management, and after 3 years of working as architect and project manager, he decided to quit it all and followed his heart as a musician.

Musallam developed his skills playing the guitar and the oud and began to fuse the influences that inspired him, mainly Jazz, Rock, Arabic music, Latin and Asian music. The release of his first album in 2003 ‘On a Jordan River's Side’ under his own label K & G, was highly acclaimed and appreciated on an international scale. Since then, he released 5 more albums: ‘Out Of My City’ in 2008, ‘Lulu’ in 2009 (Grammy selection), ‘Songs For Seung-eun’ in 2011 (Grammy selection), ‘The Best Of Kamal Musallam 1999-2011’ in 2012, and last but not least ‘Homemade in Rome’ in 2014.

Kamal has recorded and played along with a long list of world class musicians such as George Benson, Bobby Mc Ferrin, Billy Cobham, Randy Brecker, Mike Stern, Kai Eckhardt, Ada Rovatti, Stanley Jordan, Anne Ducros, David Reinhardt, Jorge Pardo (Paco De Lucia Septet) and Francisco Molina, among others.In 2001 Kamal registered his record label K & G, and in 2006, he established his music production & promotion company in the UAE, KMAC.

Musallam is currently playing the newly developed electric oud by Godin, the Multi-Oud. He had also developed with Ibanez new signature guitar models that provide the facility to play Arabic quarter tones, the electric KMM1, the acoustic KMA1 and in 2014, the KMM100.
