The Bhakti Masti Kirtan concert organiser Khrish­na Sami says they will be injecting a Fijian reggae vibe at this year’s concert.

The concert will be held at Tilak High School in Ba on April 7.

“We have pulled out some of the effects that used to be followed by the older generations and we have mixed it with some Bollywood, reggae and Fijian flavor to give it a unique sound so nice,” Mr Sami said.

“These are some kind of sounds people like to hear and we will make it happen for all patrons.”

He said they plan to give their audience something new, but still maintain the foundations of the Kirtan.

“We will bring in a lot of talented Kirtan players, like Fiji’s very own Lautoka-based Avinesh Chand, who has played in Australia, New Zealand, Canada and some places around the world where Indo-Fiji­ans live,” Mr Sami said.

Janend Naidu with his group called the BSB boys and Davend Nutt and 20 other musicians will be performing on the day

This also includes debut artist Arjun Bawan Sami, who is an es­tablished Tambura Bhajan singer and musician.

“The night is about jamming and it is all about music, with our music, our lyrics so we are expect­ing a jam packed crowd at Tilak High School on the night of the event,” Mr Sami said.

He said the overall concept of the music on the night would be mixed with some Fijian flavor.

“Because I am a Fijian the music that we will be coming out with is going to be a masterpiece of reg­gae Fiji style ” Sami said.
