Concert For Komodo – On Saturday night starting from 18.00 onwards, on July 30th 2011, Bali’s famous Kuta Beach will throb with the beats of a special Concert dedicated to Komodo National Park, the living legend of Flores . Designed to appeal foreign tourists and expatriates in Bali, the concert will feature renowned Indonesian jazz artists which will include Dwiki & World Peace Ensamble, Dira Sugandi, Sandhy Sondoro, Ivan Nestorman, and several others with ethnic ambiance and nuance. We will also feature never seen footages and film, produced by Kompas TV Network, about the Komodo National Park as the Real Wonder of the World.

The reason for choosing Bali as venue for the concert is because Bali acts as main hub that connects travelers to Komodo National Park. “There are many flights to Komodo from Bali” said Hermawan Kartajaya (Special Ambassador for Indonesia’s Tourism). To reach Komodo one must fly from Bali to the town of Labuan Bajo on Flores, then take a boat to the Komodo National Park.

All are invited to join the Concert, which is free from admission, and everyone including tourists and locals are urged to join the concert and support its cause.

In addition to the Kuta Bali Concert for Komodo, the campaign will also present  Komodo Nights scheduled to take place in Sydney on September 9th, 2011, and in Chicago on September 22nd, 2011. Tourists from the U.S.A and Australia as well as Europe still dominate international visitors to the Komodo National Park, thus the events are also aimed to galvanize participation from the media, travel agents, travel writer, bloggers, naturalist, zoologist, nonprofit originations, and Friends of Komodo in the world, particularly in the USA and Australia.

Another element in the campaign program is the Komodo Apps Challenge. In this contest that offers considerable cash prizes, everyone can be involved in a competition to develop mobile applications for BlackBerry, Androids, and iPad/iPhone, with the purpose to promote the Komodo National Park.”The winning applications will be supported by us to be promoted worldwide.
