Jazzy times are here again! For the seventh year in a row, Ubud Village Jazz Festival brings swing back to town. From the very beginning, bridges has been supporting the festival which is focusing on promoting Indonesia’s amazing musical talent along with international artists.

This year, we welcome Vienna’s ‘first couple of jazz’, Michaela Rabitsch and Robert Pawlik. Michaela is Austria’s only female top jazz trumpet player⁠ and Robert—her ingenious partner—is a composer and guitarist. They have worked together for over twenty years, toured intensively and performed in prestigious jazz festivals all around the world.

The power couple presents a diversified and sophisticated musical experience with their signature sound of jazz spiced up with a touch of the world. Their program includes jazz, fusion, and world music with catchy melodies, strong harmonies, groovy rhythms and adventurous improvisations in a fine balanced vocal-instrumental mix.

The concert starts at 12:30PM in bridges’ Riverside dining room and includes two sets of 45 minutes each. The intimate room provides an up close and personal concert experience. You can come for a drink—our bar team has created special cocktails for the occasion—or for lunch, the chef proposes delicious dishes on his menu.

A really nice way to spend a Sunday!

Reservation strongly recommended. No cover charge. Minimum consumption: Rp.150,000++ (food or drink)
