Speakers Profiles_3rdIRD-07

After first being introduced to Indonesia and its music at Flinders University, Brett has gone on to spend the last five years living and studying in Indonesia. His hobby of music and it’s social importance for local communities has seen him spend time in Java, Jakarta, Kalimantan and most recently West Sumatra studying not only the music but also languages and cultures of these areas.

This interest has followed Brett back to Adelaide where he has recently taken on role as Artistic and Cultural Director for Indofest Adelaide 2016. Through this role he has been able to engage with many different community groups as well as form his own group with the focus of strengthening Australia-Indonesia relations through collaborations of local Indonesian art forms developed and performed here in Australia.
