EXCITING times lie ahead for the cultural music and dance group, Rako Pasefika, as they enter a partnership with WOWS Kids Fiji.

The partnership was made official at a signing on Monday.

"This is a great match," WOWS Kid's chairman Makrava Wilson said.

"The work of both entities involves youths and children, so it's a delight to have Rako on board as the official band of WOWS Kids Fiji for 2014."

Translated, the verb rako means to learn, this accurately represents the vision of Rako Pasefika.

"Our work is part of their quest to retain traditional knowledge and skills and to gain more insight depth and understanding of their heritage, but with a focus on creative freedom," Paul Dominiko, Rako director explained.

Rako Pasefika has been a long-time supporter of WOWS Kids.
