Overview

Following the success of previous editions, the Government of West Halmahera will once again present the 5th edition of the Festival Teluk Jailolo or Jailolo Bay Festival 2013 from 16th to 18th May 2013,  at Jailolo or Gilolo , other names given by the inhabitants to the island  better known as Halmahera in the province of North Maluku.


Reviving the former glory of Halmahera as the world’s origin of spices, and acknowledging the island’s abundant natural and cultural wealth, this year the Jailolo Bay Festival has particularly chosen the theme “The Treasure of Golden Spice Islands”.


Organized by the office of Tourism of the West Halmahera Regency, the event is aimed to introduce and promote the natural splendors, cultural attractions, and other potential attractions of the regency. During  the festivities, the public will be presented with various unique programs such as a Spice Parade, a Spice Expo, Spice Trip, a Fishing Competition, Swimming Competition, Rowing Competition, Fun Diving, the traditional sea ritual of Sigofi Ngolo, and a Culinary Fiesta featuring a barbecue party of 10 tons of fish.

 


As  usual, the pinnacle of the festival  will be the grand Cabaret set on the stage above the sea which this year is dubbed as Sasadu on the Sea. The Sasadu on the Sea is a collaborative production of  Dance Maestro and Choreographer Eko Supriyanto, renowned art director Oleg Sanchabakhtiar, and professional stage director Dimas Leimana.


A former dancer for the international Diva, Madonna, Eko Supriyanto has collaborated with some of the big names in the entertainment industry in  the country including Garin Nugroho, Slank, and Peter Sellars, while Dimas Leimana has been  involved in some international scale shows including those of  Mariah Carey, Bjork, and Beyonce. Oleg Sanchabachtiar.  On the other hand, Leimena is no stranger on Indonesia’s performance scene.


The sparsely populated island that is better known as Halmahera encompasses an area of 17,000 square kilometers. Here nature is exquisite which continues to inspire the festival each year. The Moslem and Christian population jointly participate annually in a joyous and harmonious local festivity that has developed into an international event.
