Makare last night released its second album ‘Taura Tale’ at the Novotel Nadi.

Band manageress Tia Roko said the new album ‘Taura Tale’ meant to take hold.

She said this was an album about celebrating a “return”.

“Returning to our fans their request to bring sounds and beats of the days gone by into today’s context,” said Mr Koroi.

“While the country is engaging in a political debate, Makare is introducing messages that are profound and directed towards the past and from there re-creating a space of future potential as individuals and as a nation.”

Makare creates a new collaborative and contemporary work by resurrecting the beautiful songs of past days and the sounds of our country Fiji.

The band is known for the uses of natural raw talent and it is unique in its delivery and execution.

It provides a meaningful and clarity of experience to their fan base.

In their first album the hit songs include the remake of ‘Na gauna’ and ‘Mai gaga voli’.

“Most of the songs sung by Makare are remake of old folk songs, but yes there is are chances of composing original songs in the long term.”

She said their target audience was music lovers.

The band includes William ‘Bigwilz’ Waqanibaravi, Simione Rova, Phil Dakei, Felix Chaudhary, Grant Douglas, and Ratu Marika Nasogege.

The management team also includes Tui Waqanibaravi  and Marie Koroi.

Makare dedicates one of its songs, “Laki Tukuna” to the 45 RFMF soldiers detained in the Golan Heights, Syria.

The band will travel to Australia for the Fiji Day celebration.
