Another common (well, common for the locals!) sight when you drive through the roads in Bali is the black and white checkered fabric which the locals called kain poleng. It’s normally found wrapped around tree trunks, statues and temples. The black and white fabric is not for aesthetics, but it’s actually a symbol of “Rwa Bhineda”, which refers to the balance of nature.
A bit of history:
The Balinese believe that everything that exists in this world has two contrasting forces that need to be equally respected, like day and night, and sadness and happiness.
Kain poleng symbolizes this concept perfectly as the black color represents the dark, while the white color represents the light. The pattern represents duality, and the whole fabric serves as a reminder for us all to keep the balance in harmony. So, whenever you see kain poleng in Bali, remember to create harmony within yourself and with others, as well as nature and the unseen spirits.
EATS EVERYTHING – LARGER THAN LIFE
Eats Everything, aka Daniel Pearce, is at the forefront of a very rich history of talented DJ’s and Producers to come out of Bristol, England. The larger-than-life beat maker made a rapid and far-reaching impact on the electronic music scene in 2011 when the fittingly titled debut ‘Entrance Song’ was released on Catz N Dogz’ ‘Pets Recordings’ imprint, and the track went on to become championed by the likes of Carl Cox, Seth Troxler, Jamie Jones, and Pete Tong on BBC Radio 1. His mashup of Tiga vs Audion’s ‘Let’s Go Dancing’
Are you still living in Bristol?
Yes I am, it’s the best. The only place I would live other than Bristol would be Ibiza. I want to live in Ibiza next summer. I’ve been coming here for a long time, got married here and stuff, so Ibiza is definitely somewhere I want to live. I want to try living in Ibiza for a year, perhaps between April to November next year. Now that I’ve got a 5 month old son who will be a year old by that time I think it would be a great place for him to have a first proper summer. If it works well then I may try and buy somewhere here and spend every summer in Ibiza and the winter in England.
What’s it like being a new parent with your career? How do you manage yourself?
I’m not going to say it’s easy because it isn’t easy, it’s quite tough. It’s tougher on my wife than it is me, because she’s looking after the boy most of the time whilst I’m away. Obviously the summer is a lot harder than the winter, because in the winter I’m pretty much home all week, then away on the weekends. I’ll also be away for stints, like I’m going away to America for three weekends, which will be almost 20 days.
