MEMBERS of the public are in for a treat today and tomorrow, as the French music festival, La FÃªte de la Musique, continues through until tomorrow evening.
The annual festival, which began back in the 1980s in France, has been turned into a week-long festival here in Fiji this year, in an attempt to expose Fijians to different musical genres.
According to a statement issued by the French Embassy, the event is celebrated annually in France on the first day of summer, which is usually around June 21.
The event has been marked in Fiji since 2006 and will this year feature, among other acts, the String Quartet of the Conservatory of Music in New Caledonia.
This quartet will play violins and cellos during their performances and they will be performing at the Play House this evening.
Other performers and artists include vude queen Laisa Vulakoro, Tom Mawi and dance group Rako Pasefika.
