Yaniq, the most wonderful, talented musician and artist, and a very gentle and handsome man who I was fortunate enough to share over 5 happy years of my life with, passed away on 5 Dec 2016.
I’m devastated and my heart goes out to his family and everyone who knew him.
Such a loss to this world and far, far too early.
Monumentally sad. Grossly unfair,
I feel so awful.
He’ll be playing his wonderful songs for the angels from now on.
Now you’re ‘On Your Way’ Yaniq, but I wish SO MUCH that you were still here, so very, very, very much.
RIP Yaniq xxxxx

Meanwhile, please read on… for the previous post to find out more about this talented Balinese man with a beautiful soul:
Yaniq (pronounced Yanick) is a Balinese singer/songwriter and artist.
He’s played guitar professionally in rock and reggae bands throughout Bali but, in the background, he’d been working on perfecting a wealth of new material… all his own, original songs.
Yaniq plays a unique style of acoustic rock, edged with reggae and blues and sprinkled with Balinese spices and now he’s ready to share this new music with you:
‘Smile’ was recorded live in the rice fields of Ubud, Bali.
Yaniq’s first ever solo gig, on 14 January 2014, was at a bar in Ubud called Lezat.
He’s since played at Coffee & Copper, The Secret Lounge, Bridges restaurant, Alit’s Warung, Devilicious, a number of charity gigs and in rice fields too!
Yaniq is also an artist and you will find some of his artwork here on his blog. Here’s a sample:
