Jubilee season will be about continuity and the power of continuity and value creation. – is the Kobuci Kert team, who have been building the most intimate concert venues for contemporary light music in Ubud for the past 15 years. According to their credo, a love of fringe species, an ethic of hospitality, and an audience open to quality are the three main pillars that define the ethos of a place.
