Music to help youths

VUDE Queen Laisa Vulakoro sees the All Back Home music event as a way of breaking barriers and bringing people closer together.

Vulakoro, a well recognised and established singer, has been in the music industry for 35 years and has recorded 16 albums.

She is in the process of recording an album, to be completed in Noumea with Mangrove Studios this year.

She said she looked forward to performing with other musicians especially with Victor Rounds during the All Back Home event.

"I think this music event is a good way to reconnect all the old artists especially those who have left our shores," she said.

"It's good to note that they still love coming down to Fiji to perform and we, the local artists, always look forward to performing with them too.

"Music is always the best way or tool to portray issues whether it's personal or it's something affecting the country and it really brings people close every time."

She said a lot of people needed the help of musicians and singers and music was the greatest way to develop the talents of young musicians and help people.

"A lot of young people out there are lost and they do not really know who they are or where they are going.

"I think music is a universal language that everyone understands and loves and it can help them understand what they are going through," Vulakoro said.

"We see young people find themselves through music so the music event is really going to help the younger generation."

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