Musicians concerned

CONCERNED about the plight of musicians and performers in the Western Division, the Western Musicians and Entertainers Association is hoping many will turn up for their annual general meeting on Monday, May 19, at the new Nadi Farmers Club.

Association general secretary Homer Fare said there was an urgent need for all musicians in the division to register with the organisation to provide a common voice and platform to deal with issues that most artists faced.

"The AGM is important because the current executive body is nearing the expiry of their term in office and there is a need for a stronger and a more vibrant team of executives to guide our association in the right direction," he said.

"We need movers that can unite musicians and entertainers and work with the government to shape our music industry for the betterment of everybody — the performers, venue owners and operators and resort properties."
