THE first International band to arrive on our shores for the International Jazz and Blues Festival are the Black Sand Diva Band from New Zealand.

International Jazz and Blues Festival director Billy Te Kahika said the Black Sand Diva Band arrived yesterday with the bands from Australia and US arriving tomorrow onwards.

Mr Te Kahika said there were other bands from New Zealand which are expected to arrive this week too.

"There are over 60 international musicians that are expected to arrive in the country this week," Mr Te Kahika said.

He said Mofo Party Band had been a major favourite in Fiji and was part of the festival this year as well.

"Artists that have been performing in Fiji previously includes Warwick Murray, Ramblin Rick Stringer and Groover Shakers," Mr Te Kahika said.

"Ticket sales for the festival have been good and steady with lots of calls and enquiries coming in.

"Artist that have been to Nadi before for the previous festival are looking forward to seeking another part of Fiji."

Festival headliner for this year is Renee Geyer, who is an Australian soul queen. She is a precocious jazz, blues and soul singer.
