The Senses: A Rainforest Concert

George Town Festival 2023 presents The Senses: A Rainforest Concert

The Senses Rainforest Concert is back!

The Senses brings an evening of reconnection, reconciliation, and renewal through a mosaic of indigenous, ethnic, and cultural musical heritage nestled within the canopy of our exceptional tropical biodiversity at The Habitat Penang Hill. This year’s line up includes the duo of Charles Maimarosia & David Bridie from Australasia and Sangpuy Katatepan of Taitung’s Pinuyumayan community. Ushering in a deeper awareness of East Malaysia are Meruked and Sada Borneo, who bring to life the spirit and rhythms of Borneo.

The current edition of The Senses is a testament to the power of global cultural and artistic relations through creative partnerships and collaborations. This year, the George Town Festival partners with the Australian High Commission to commemorate the 50th anniversary of George Town and Adelaide as sister cities, strengthening the unique relationship between the two countries and three UNESCO-designated sites: the Penang Hill Biosphere Reserve, the Adelaide City of Music, and the George Town World Heritage Site.

Audiences also get the opportunity to bask in the sensory and immersive experience while enjoying 360–degree views of the island and mainland from Curtis Crest Tree Top Walk – the highest viewing point on Penang Island.

Together, The Senses offers an unparalleled opportunity for a shared experience to honour and embrace the vitality and value of our intangible heritage.
