The rare opportunity to see Tiki Taane and Knox, two of Fiji and New Zealand’s most acclaimed artists in an up close and personal set at The Mojito on the evening of 24th of May for the small fee of FJ $10 is a fantastic opportunity for Fiji. The event, priced at FJ $10 entry including one free Corona or Fiji Rum upon arrival is set to fundraise money via raffles for Animals Fiji in their search to relocate their Nadi clinic and shelter.
Tiki Taane is one of New Zealand’s most sort after musicians. He was a member of leading New Zealand band Salmonella Dub who has since moved onto an incredible solo career. His debut album, “Past, Present, Future”, was released on 22 October 2007 in New Zealand and has gone two times platinum, achieving a number one single, “Always On My Mind”, which is the most successful single of all time in New Zealand.
Taane is also the live sound engineer for New Zealand drum and bass act Shapeshifter. Knox was born in Suva and spent the early part of his life in Rotuma and returned to Suva for his formative years. Idolized for his voice reminiscent of Bob Marley and guitar skills that can only be described as some sort of unholy union between Hendrix, Clapton and Chapman, Knox has become a Fiji celebrity. With his roots in laid-back contemporary reggae, Knox has evolved his sound into Reggae Rock with a twist of Roots and serves up his Australian debut single Candy in 2013 and continues to look ahead and share his message beyond his island shores.
The intimate concert at Port Denarau Retail Complex’s newest and freshest bar and restaurant, The Mojito, will offer various raffles prizes, such as twin tickets to the massive three night party ‘BlueSky FIJI’ in October. All proceeds raised are going to Animals Fiji Nadi Clinic (operated by the West Charity Trust Society—Fiji charity registration #889), which provides emergency care for sick animals and plays a vital role in the management and control of Fiji’s feral cat and dog populations. Their forced relocation is fundraising to find the FJ$300,000 it needs to do this. If Animals Fiji Nadi Clinic closes then the valuable out-reach programs will cease and there will be no animal doctor in the region, putting the lives of animals and the health of people at risk.
