Musical fiesta

Shalveen Chand
Sunday, June 08, 2014

A MUSIC fiesta was promised and delivered by artists who performed at the first All Back Home concert last evening at the Royal Suva Yacht Club.

ABH spokeswoman Miri Koroi said all artists who put their hands up for the show that united Fiji's local music stars of yesteryear had a chance to share the stage and do what they do best — play music.

The show last night was also the only one for Suva, with the rest of the shows booked for the West, mainly in Nadi.

The day didn't start at 5pm yesterday though, earlier in the day bassist Victor Rounds and drummer Lisa Purmodh held classes for children interested in learning music.

Then it was half an hour of country music by frontman of the 1960's band Havana Boys and few other local artists.

Then it was one hour of contemporary jazz where legendary guitarists including Tom Mawi, Howard Shultz, Sam Waqa and George Knight delivered their versions of classic bebop tunes.

And as the night went on, the music kept getting better.
