Stewart Copeland (pictured), co-founder and drummer of rock band The Police, will star in a travelogue special set to air on Travel Channel next month.

Island Fever follows the musician as he travels to the Indonesian island of Bali to explore its food, culture and music. Copeland goes surfing, drinks local moonshine in rice fields, jams with a Balinese gamelan drumming group and participates in a purification ceremony at an ancient temple.

“You discover the rhythm of a place through the eyes of the locals,” he said in a statement.

The special is produced by Jason Carbone‘s Good Clean Fun, the company behind VH1′s Barely Famous and the upcoming Amazon reality series Endorsed, starring Cindy Crawford.

Island Fever airs on Travel at 12 p.m. EST/PST on July 9.
