Director Statement

My wish is to expose our beautiful rich culture and the stories, not only of Borneo but of the whole family of South East Asia to the world. Music is just the icing on the cake , there's more to explore, learn and to share to those who don't know about it's existence. It's too beautiful and magnificent for us to not be proud of it.
