Jayda G to screen her environmental documentary at Potato Head Bali this Friday

Grammy-nominated DJ-slash-producer-slash-scientist Jayda G lands in Bali for a special screening of her documentary Blue Carbon this Friday, January 5, 2024.

Hosting the special event is Potato Head Bali, making use of its Studio Eksotika space from 4pm-6pm for the intimate event, which includes a Q&A with Jayda herself and the film’s director, Nicolas Brown.

With Wu-Tang Clan mastermind RZA at the helm of the film’s score, Blue Carbon sees Jayda wear her hats as a musician and environmental toxicologist as she talks about how our oceans can help fight climate change.

The documentary mixes music and science and travels to the USA, Senegal, Vietnam, France, Colombia, and Brazil, exploring the idea that oceans can absorb a lot of carbon and help against global warming.

The film shows that oceans can soak up more carbon than forests, called "Blue Carbon," found in sea plants, and how we need to save these ocean spots, like salt marshes and mangroves, from disappearing.

It ends with Jayda realising how important our oceans are in fighting climate change, especially after a magical moment with whales in Brazil — in addition to meeting her musical idol, Seu Jorge.

In the trailer, Jayda is seen doing field recordings of sounds of coastal habitats “that we don’t value enough”, further underlining how “each place has its own orchestra.”

On the same day, starting 5pm until 2am on Saturday, Potato Head Beach Club presents an event that aims to “dust away the post-NYE blues” with performances by Jayda G herself alongside Kyoto-born, Berlin-based Alex Kassian.

Expect an infectious, feel-good set from Jayda who’s known for her sound that fuses elements of future house, jazz, neo-soul and pop.

As for Alex Kassian, who performed the first sunrise set at this year’s Wonderfruit Festival, it’s most likely his diverse and borderline obscure repertoire will keep attendees on their toes.
