Threads of Life. Jl. Kajeng No.24 (Google Maps)

Threads of Life are delighted to present Kahi Ata Ratu, the Queen of Sumbanese folk music, from East Sumba. As motifs appear to weavers, songs appear to Ata Ratu in her dreams. Her music is spontaneous and will speak of her journey to Bali, and of traditional textiles, culture and the land.

Threads of Life dengan bangga mempersembahkan Kahi Ata Ratu, Ratu musik folk Sumba, dari Sumba Timur. Sebagaimana motif-motif yang muncul untuk para penggunanya, lagu-lagu muncul untuk Ata Ratu dalam mimpinya. Musiknya spontan dan mengisahkan tentang perjalanannya ke Bali, dan tekstil-tekstil tradisional, budaya serta tempat tinggal.
