Pondok Pisang

Pondok Pisang is located in the Mendira Village of Karangasem in East Bali (near Candidasa). A perfect Bali holiday retreat nestled amongst the coconut trees with a private beach. This area of Bali is isolated from the main tourist areas, and the sea is translucent green and calm. Perfect for swimming and snorkeling.

Pondok Pisang has 5 comfortable bungalows that include hot water showers. The bungalows are surrounded by a large tropical garden and all rooms have an ocean view. There is also a large and spacious yoga barn on the first floor, overlooking the ocean for all types of group activities (yoga, meditation, etc.).

Pondok Pisang has its own restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. The ingredient for the food comes directly from the surrounding area, including fresh fruit, vegetables and fish. One of our specialties is the “Ikan Pepes,” fish that is spiced then wrapped in banana leaves and grilled. For dessert, our Black Rice Pudding with Coconut Milk and Banana is the house favorite, and for a snack our tasty fried bananas are a perfect match with your tea or coffee.

Anita Daulne

Anita And Marie Daulne (Zap Mama) Trace Their Cultural Origins Both To The Congo And To Belgium.
For Some Time We Have Been Exploring This World Of Sounds To Extract Specific Lessons, In Particular The Essentials To Practice Voices Throughout The World. This Has Come About Through Considerable Work, Now Recognized Throughout The World, With Zap Mama Being Nominated For The US Grammy Awards.

At The Same Time We Wished To Share Our Excellence In Musical Research Within The European And Even The American Sphere, Where All Too Often Ethnic Music Is Considered Inaccessible. Zap Mama CDs Have Well Contributed To This Intercultural Approach.

Zap Mama Is An ”Afro-Pean” Musical Culture, A Precise Perfectly Proportioned Cross-Fertilisation, Which, While Keeping Its Own Ethnic Savor Blends With The Modern. By Acquiring A Greater Perception Of Traditional Songs, This Cross-Effect Mages People Become Aware Of Themselves And To Reach Out Across The World. But We Have Gone Further Than This: With-Up-To-The-Present Conferences And Instruction Periods Relating To This Work.

It Consists Of Proving This Universe Of Music And Projecting Song Techniques Seldom Or Never Known In Western Academies Of Music And By Adapting Such Workplaces To Place Them Within Reach Of Everyone.

To Do This We Bave Travelled Throughout North, South, East And West Africa; We Have Learnt, Exchanged And Shared Information With Griots Or Bards, Tuareg Women, Dongons, Peulhs, Pygmies, Mangbetu, Zulus And Others. This We Have Done This Simple To Make The Western World Aware Of Some Of Its Riches.

There Are Others: As Yodel, Song And Counterpoint, Tuilage (1) And Call-And-Response.

This Work Has Had Such Success That Even Academies, Conservatoires And Universities Have Invited Us To Teach And Explain. These Include The UCE University At Birmingham, The University Of San Diego In California, The Conservatory Of Copenhagen, The School Of Rhythm At Arhus In Denmark, The University Of Leuven; Also In Sweden And In Classical Choral Societies In France And Belgium.
