I am Mat a Drummer and designer. Ngurah and Putu are the family who own the land, I manage the bookings, They check you in.
Ubud is cultural, not a real party place, it is the place to see the richness of the Balinese Hinduism, many dance performances, museums, arts and crafts to explore, great restaurants, There are some late night bars.
I travel to learn, not a big picture taker
my basses are in Byron Bay, Ibitha, or England depending on where summer is.
In Ibitha i stay with a very traditional family. when we sit down to lunch every thing on the table come from the house, the bread is made from wheat that was grown just down the hill, ground in the garage and baked in an earthern oven.
In Ubud Ngurah and Putu let me stay here for free!!! and I help design and fix the place up, Ubud is a relax between hemispheres place for me, massage, juice the sound of gamalan in the distance.
In England, I play shows at festivals and venues
In Byron Bay I study with my friend greg sheehan a master drummer and epervesent teacher.
I love life and rich experiences, big money is not required
