Musicians reconnect

FIJIAN musicians were given a chance to entertain and showcase their musical prowess at the Nadi Farmers Club last Saturday night.

The Music Reconnect event provided the perfect stage for jam sessions with old and new artists displaying their talents to a packed crowd. Event co-organiser Tim Liu said the night was a success.

"It was a great event and it allowed a lot of our aspiring young artists to also witness some of the older musicians," he said.

"It was good to see musicians from the Sydney Fijian Musicians Association work their magic and also members of the Western Musicians and Entertainers Association entertain the crowd."

He said the event would become an annual affair.

"Last year, we held the first Music Reconnect event and we saw that a lot of people responded well to it.

"Now we are looking at keeping this great thing going because it helps us promote our local artists and the various musical talents that they have."

According to the organisers, Music Reconnect promotes friendship through music and the sharing of experience from seasoned musicians, local and abroad.

The main objective of the event is to develop music workshops and clinics for upcoming young musicians and encourage talented youths to develop and build a sustainable future.

Bands that were part of the event included Rosiloa, Simple Staff, the Western Musicians and Entertainers Association band, KIKS, World's Party People Band and Dejavu Fiji.
