Versatile singer

Mere Naleba
Friday, May 23, 2014

MUSICAL band De'javu's lead singer Eni Kumar believes that being a successful musician, one has to be committed to the job at hand which would mean sacrificing their time in trying to better their performance.

Kumar, originally from Lutu Village in Naitasiri, is one of the many musicians who are already preparing for the All Back Home 2014 (ABH2014) music show which will feature local and Fiji-born artists living in Australia.

The show, which is aimed at raising funds for the St Giles Hospital, will feature one of the music genres where Kumar will be doing a solo number.

A versatile singer, Kumar will perform in the Jazz genre and will be playing alongside famous jazz guitarist Tom Mawi, who in the late '60s, was dubbed as one of the top 10 guitarists in the world by the US jazz chronicle Down Beat.

Kumar, who first played in the Ulysses band, said she would once again reunite with another band member, who now resided in Australia, Bobby Blue.

"It's a great initiative taken by the organisers and also a great event for the country," she said.

The music festival will be held at the Royal Suva Yacht Club on June 7.
