SANDAKAN : The Borneo Rhythms of Rimba (ROR) Wildlife Festival drew an audience of close to 2,500 individuals on Aug 20-21 at the Rainforest Discovery Centre, Sepilok Sandakan.
The festival’s multi-disciplinary programme, spread over five zones, offered endless activities to encourage a greater appreciation of the natural environment and the life that it supports.
As in previous years, programme presenters and contributors brought their latest ideas and contents to make each and every element, a new experience.
Some of the highlights included the first floating multi-purpose platform in a Sandakan lake/forest setting, with BiBi McGill (Beyonce’s former lead guitarist) and Heather Craig’s yoga and workout sessions attracting colourful crowds. The 100m zipline feature also attracted endless queues.
For Sada Borneo, a music group that gained fame on the Asia’s Got Talent show, this performance was their very first in Sabah, and the crowd was mesmerized by music which merged contemporary sounds with traditional Bornean elements.
