Prominent artist, and  published writer Peter Sipeli said that there was a special joy in reciting poetry during the festive season.

This was after he performed live in Daku Resort, Savusavu.

“Poetry comes in personal space and singing too comes in personal space,” said Mr Sipeli, 41.

He explained that ‘space’ was all about reflection and the bonding of people from different backgrounds.

“There is a special chemistry one can feel especially in this season of joy,” he said.

“This is the first time I have been performing in the North and it feels so good to be here,” he said.

He said that he learnt the art back in high school and events in the past mostly inspired him to come up with new pieces.

His parent’s death encouraged him to share his experiences through poetry, a voice that gets creative at each step.

Mr Sipeli is also the manager of Art Talk, a magazine in Fiji focused on art and history.

After his performance in Savusavu, Mr Sipeli said that surprising the guests was a good feeling for him.

“I love performing my pieces and would encourage more young minds to pursue this field,” he said. Edited by Losirene Lacanivalu
