Opportunity to shine

MUSIC couples Reginald and Vana Raihman have been in the music industry for many years and they believe the All Back Home music event provides an opportunity for local musicians to shine.

The couple, who have been known in the local music industry for so long, will be part of the much anticipated event to be held next month.

Reginald, 71, was one of the well known Havana Boys members back in the 1960s who used to play at the then Barn — now known as Wrecktangles while Vana used to play for a group in Australia before coming over to Fiji.

"It's a very good thing that such an idea has been brought up where we musicians, young and old can all get together at the event," Vana said.

"Let's hope it carries on and we just can't wait to be part of the event.

"It will boost the music industry in Fiji and will assist many young musicians a lot as this event will also feature many pioneer musicians."

They added the event should continue as it was a good breeding ground for local musicians and it would assist a lot in the nurturing of local talents.

The couple also sing to patients at the St Giles Psychiatric Hospital every Wednesday for the past four years and they believe this is one of the main reasons they are still going strong in music.
