It?s true, Byron still loves Bali



The exotic sights, sounds and smells of Indonesia filled the Byron Bay Community Centre Theatre on Saturday night as hundreds of people attended a fundraising concert to raise money for the Bali bombing victims.

The Byron Still Loves Bali benefit concert was organised by the Australian Indonesian Arts Alliance (AIAA) which has provided ongoing support to the victims of the Bali bombings for the past two years.

Young and old enjoyed a night of scrumptious Indonesian food, breathtaking Balinese dancers, the exotic and mesmerising sounds of the Langen Sari Gamelan Orchestra and the amazing talents of musician-in-residence from West Java, Efen Janeudin.

Hannabeth Luke of Byron Bay who lived through the nightmare of the Bali bomb- ings said ongoing financial support for the victims was important.

Founder of AIAA Judith Shelley said the AIAA had made a commitment to support Bali bombing victims long term. More than $2000 was raised from the event.
