YOUTH BAND FOR SOLS
By Leone cabenatabua
Dickie Bird flew in with news that Roko Vatuwaqa-led Fiji National Youth Band is going to be representing the country to the Pacific Festival of Arts in Honiara next month.
Dickie Bird said financial constraints mean the countryâ€™s top band Rosi Loa and musical artist Jale Mareau will not be part of the Fijian contingent.
Mr Mareau – who is of Solomons descent – and Rosi Loa have a big following in the Happy Isles.
