About The Festival


Borneo Jazz is an annual two-day international  festival , nestled in the gentle town of Miri, in northern Sarawak, East Malaysia.

It has gained the reputation of presenting a collection of eclectic bands that spans the history, the lineage and the variety of the jazz repertoire.

If “what is jazz?” is the eternal question, then Borneo Jazz seeks to be the adventure in looking for the musical solution.

In its 12 year history, it has put on stage everything from New Orleans bands to Samarinda Jazz,  from  Latin & Caribbean jazz to Blues & Boogie Woogie, from Afro jazz to Shanghai jazz, from Funk to Vocal Jazz.

And the search still continues….

The beach, palm trees, laid-back vibe serves to be the backdrop for the festival’s outside stage.

Besides the main acts, there are also Youth Programmes and Outreach Programme tutorials to give a platform and training opportunities to the local communities, and informal jam sessions after the shows.
