Borneo Jazz 13 May 11 @ Parkcity Everly

As a member of the media team, we were being fed with quite a lot of information which is useful for publication. However, I will just feed you with photos.
For the media team, last night event started with a cocktail party at Marriott Resort and Spa.
Marriott hotel had kindly hosted the event... on the left is Marcel Hinderer, GM
First performance by SIU2 – China. A very nice performance with a combination of Eastern and western musical instrument.
Kate Ann Welsman - a top Australian DJ!
Cunha E Piper – Brazil/Australia features contemporary and traditional compositions. Listen to their pieces will definitely sooth your spirit!
John Hammond, USA - voted as one of the top ten blues artist in the world. His pieces were soooo very good and you know why? He always serve tradition by pouring his heart and soul into full-bodied interpretations of the classics through the simple combination of brilliant guitar, rack harmonica, and intensely expressive vocals!
Les Doigts De L’Homme – France
Les Doigts De L’Homme – France. Their Bio:  Explosive, eclectic, and unexpected, Les Doigts de L’Homme, takes gypsy jazz further than ever before. Infusing this exciting up-tempo music with elements of swing, rock, and even punk, they are pure energy in human form. Their show is dynamic, comedic, passionate and always captivating. They meld gypsy jazz standards and their own compositions with influences of Balkan and rock, all with a close eye on the details. Les Doigts de L’Homme combine excellent musicianship, innovative creatively, and powerful showmanship, to move this popular genre into a new direction – reaching beyond the limits into a refreshing new sound. Les Doigts de L’Homme is unmistakable authentic with explosive energy perfectly mastered.
I can't disagree with their bio!
