    Good piece of work.

    Good idea to bring back all the old classics. I’m sure most young people today will be hearing some of the songs for the first time as well.

    Old classics made new…A CLASS ACT & A CUT ABOVE THE REST.
    Totoka vakaoti…vina valevu djina.

    very original video clip….Na gauna.And Sobo lesu mai ca way you guys sang it its like big boys lullaby,smooth and easy listening.Thank you boys.

  • As far as music is concerned in Fiji, this group is the best, yes indeed a cut above the rest, no doubt about that.You really made me crazy with your style of singing, the relations of the chords were excellent; expressing lyrics in a much deeper affection, even the old songs were sung perfectly to what they should have been way back.Vinaka Vakalevu and keep it up. I will await the release of your new album on the 6th September.
