Situated on the island of Borneo and boasting stunning natural wonders, unique traditions and welcoming people, the Malaysian state of Sarawak is a must-visit destination.

And for the past 18 years, it has also established itself as a hotbed of world music, with the Rainforest World Music Festival taking place every August.

This year, the 19th annual festival takes place from August 5-7, showcasing not only Malaysia’s musical heritage, but also music and musicians from every continent of the world.
