One of our guests, Jennifer Capo, who has stayed at Ohana Retreat Bali several times, created a special event on our rooftop. She invited local artists, musicians, storytellers, and even an astrologer. It started out simple enough: we moved cushions from various places onto the rooftop:
The event started at 6pm. An unusual electronic cello made for some beautiful, ethereal sounds:
After sunset the mood was relaxed. Everyone was ready for a story. Jamin Heppell talked about his charity run from Lovina to Seminyak in Bali: 90 kilometers! Previously his personal best was 56 km. He was able to raise over $10,400 USD for the children of Bali:
Two musicians who have never met before, but both originally from Brazil, decided to connect both musically and otherwise, and the audience appreciated every moment:
All in all it was a lovely event, as the two hours flew right by.
When we first built Ohana we wondered what would take place on our roofs. We have a rooftop bar that has also been used as an outdoor office for the digital nomad crowd. But our event / yoga / small wedding space is still evolving. This event was the perfect launch.
