Nadi will be a hive a of activity on Saturday, June 14 as 60 local and international musicians unite on stage during the evening belting out incredible sounds to entertain the people of Nadi town at The New Nadi Farmers Club and Restaurant.
This event came about last year with the inaugural “Music Reconnect 2013” showcasing seasoned Fijian musicians living abroad reconnecting with our great local talents in Fiji. The collaboration of Mr Lawrence Foon of the Sydney Fijian Musicians Association in conjunction with Western Musicians & Entertainers Association of Fiji & Tom Liu of The New Nadi Farmers Club Bar.
