Salomon Gau, 57, has been in a good mood since attending the 2022 Rainforest World Music Festival (RWMF), which took place at the Sarawak Cultural Village in Kuching last weekend.

It’s been four years since Miri-based Salomon last performed at the Festival, which was put on hold because of the Covid-19 pandemic and Salomon was happy to be back at the music event.
