Yaniq played his own acoustic music at Bridges…
This famous restaurant were celebrating the 1st Anniversary of Divine Friday’s - which is always a great opportunity to welcome the weekend with a glass of wine, or three!
The anniversary event started off on the terrace overlooking the bridge, then moved inside the restaurant.
Guests were entertained by Yaniq as well as another musician called Pak Tatang. Wine, song, fine dining and even a jam session contest was held – which included a tap dancer!
Since then Yaniq’s played a few gigs with his friend’s band called Uluroots who are based in Uluwatu, in the south of Bali.
Uluroots are a great reggae band who often perform ‘on the beach’ which means the audience dance in the sand. You can just see the natural rock backdrop to their wooden stage and, in front, everyone is dancing barefoot in the sand under a starry sky:
Our good friend Nancy jammed with Yaniq one night at The Secret Lounge – nice one Nance:
And here’s Yaniq jamming with local bands in Ubud… this is Griya Faria and Yaniq is on the left of the picture just about to go into a guitar solo:
And here he is jamming with Aboe’s band at Napi Urti:
And with Fredi Marley – just chillin’ in the bale…
This week Yaniq’s still playing down south with Uluroots – but soon he’ll be back in Ubud playing his own original acoustic rock, edged with reggae & blues and sprinkled with tropical Balinese spices!
And even before that he’ll be uploading a video onto Youtube – so watch this space!
