Kopernik is a non-profit organisation headquartered in Indonesia that distributes low-cost technologies to recipients in developing countries using crowdfunding.
Navicula was formed in Bali in 1996. Their music has a grunge rock undertone, but is combined with many other genres of sound, such as ethnic, folk, psychedelic, punk, alternative, funk, blues, and straightforward rock. Navicula are known as “the Green Grunge Gentlemen”. Since the formation of the band back in the 90’s, environmental and social issues have been a consistent theme in Navicula’s music. Living in Bali, the band often finds inspiration in nature, and seeing the environmental changes happening in Bali and the world, this inspires many of the topics of their songs. They continue to support social and environmental campaigns in Indonesia and around the world.
