By adopting “Clothing The Nation” as its theme, the 2016 Jazz Market will continue its celebration of all things Indonesian, by introducing a fashionable heritage element. As clothing and textiles are a core part of the cultural fabric of the Indonesian archipelago, Jazz Market by the Sea will showcase the diversity of Indonesian textiles, clothing, and the evolution of Indonesian fashion. This will highlight both traditional and modern styles, through fashion shows for young designer labels, classes on Batik making, weaving, embroidery, jewelry-making, as well as educational sessions on textiles and fashion-related workshops. Famous for its unique and legendary performers, this year’s event that will  be graced by top performers that include KLA Project, White Shoes & The Couple Company, Dialog Dini Hari and Lisa Soul. Local acts include The Blessing Child, Rockabilly Mob, Fendy Trio, Sound of Mine, 4units, Sunday Jam, Erik Sondhy, and Gypsy Jazz. “The Jazz Market” concept is inspired by the traditional ‘pasar seni’ or “art market” in Bali, where the local community comes together in a colorful market environment.
