Bring it home

FIJI born musicians living abroad will soon be sponsoring budding musicians in tertiary level to further their studies overseas.

This is in the pipeline for the Sydney Fijian Musician Association which will conduct a workshop on June 7 where members of the public present on the night can witness members of the community playing tunes from as way back as the '60s and '70s.

Talented guitarist Nezbit Hazelman said they were now considering working with tertiary institutions that offered music courses to help them select music students who needed help financially.

"It's an idea that is now on our minds, and we are going to identify these students and in the near future help them by providing scholarships to study music overseas," he said.

In a press conference on Monday, the program that will be known as the ABH2014 — bringing it All Back Home, will be held at the Royal Suva Yacht Club.

"This event is to encourage local musicians living abroad to bring home their talent once every year to raise funds for the unfortunate and to encourage local upstarting musicians that there is a rainbow at the end of the tiresome journey of a musician should you commit to it," Mr Hazelman said.
