Hand in Hand for Lombok: Charity concert for earthquake victims

As a manifestation of its high commitment to give back to the community and provide vital aid to the victims of the recent Lombok earthquakes, Mövenpick Resort & Spa Jimbaran Bali hosted an inspiring charity event.

This action followed an earlier response taken by Mövenpick Resort & Spa Jimbaran Bali in the immediate aftermath of the first earthquake, whereby a team of employees visited North Lombok to deliver urgent supplies and medication.

The Voice of Lombok charity concert was initiated in collaboration with Elizabeth International School with the primary aim to raise funds and help those directly impacted by this devasting act of nature. More than 200 people gathered in the resort’s well-appointed Akasa Ballroom for an evening of uplifting music headlined by renowned Indonesian diva Titi DJ. She was accompanied on stage by a number of leading musicians including acclaimed Balinese flute player Gus Teja.

Co-founder of the Ubud Village Jazz Festival, Astrid Sulaiman, also participated in this commendable charity initiative together with her Jazz Quartet. There was upbeat music from local band GlamBeer, as well as a performance by Just One Tea who came from Lombok especially for the event.

Titi DJ, accompanied by Djampiro Band, truly lived up to her diva reputation by putting her heart and soul into the concert. The committee encouraged the audience to dig deep into their pockets and even auctioned off a song in order to raise more funds. One lucky bidder had the chance to join Titi DJ on stage for an exclusive duet and photo opportunity.
