The ul­ti­mate com­mu­nity fes­ti­val is back this month in the lush Ba­li­nese town of Ubud. A high­light of the Bali cal­en­dar, the Ubud Vil­lage Jazz Fes­ti­val comes to­gether through the work of 1,000-plus vol­un­teers bring­ing the best of jazz in in­ti­mate per­for­mances. In the lineup this year are a host of In­done­sian acts, such as the Sala­man­der Big Band from Ban­dung, which claims a mighty 30 per­form­ers in its ranks, Ja­vanese na­tive Ito Kur­dhi and award-win­ning blind jazz pi­anist M. Ade Irawan. A spe­cial high­light is pi­anist Idang Rasjidi, known for his novel abil­ity to mimic the sound of in­stru­ments like the trum­pet and trom­bone with his voice.
