Growing up, artist like Eminem and Damian ‘Junior Gong’ Marley’s music style caught his attention even though he loved all genres

Expect a lot of the old favourite songs when Fiji Performing Rights Association Music Award winning rapper, Drixstar takes the stage in two weeks’ time.

“It’s exciting, I’m very nervous at the same time but it’s good to be nervous as it keeps me on my toes,” said the talented Lau native.

Drixstar is among 12 artists and bands that will be part of the much anticipated Thurston Food and Music Festival next month.

 

Who is Drixstar?

Drixstar grew up in Vatuwaqa, Suva with his parents and is the second eldest of five siblings.

Growing up, listening to artists like Eminem and Damian “Junior Gong” Marley’s music style caught his attention even though he loved all genres.

His love for music was influenced by his mum’s family, Drixstar is the grandson of legendary composer, the late Eremasi Tamanisau Snr.

“Listening to old album records my aunt would play when I was a kid or just chilling and listening to jam sessions my family would have during family gatherings sparked my passion.”

Drixtar has also confirmed that he will be performing alongside local renowned artists, Mr Grin and Wilo.

Some of his songs that have become a major hit are Lasutaka, Cava Tiko Mada, Bus Ride, Feeling Ok, Va Difficulty, and Dongs.  His hit single also include ‘Sau Tiko Viti’ and ‘Pauta’.

The Thurston Food and Music Festival will be held on July 15 (Saturday) at Thurston Garden, Suva. About 1,500 people are expected at the festival pioneered by Knox Entertainment.

Tickets are on sale at the ROC Café, Ginger Kitchen at the Fiji Museum, and Fiji Broadcasting Corporation. Admission is free for children under 12 years.
