The Bollywood folk singing group currently touring Vanua Levu spent time at a Savusavu village delighting the crowd there with their performance.
Nukubalavu Village and Nasavusavu headman, Ratu Suliano Naulu, said in his 70 years of life in the village since childhood, this was the first time he had an Indian singing group visit his village and present a sevusevu.
“I feel very excited and happy to see the eight-member folk artists from India,” Ratu Suliano said.
He said music was a beautiful experience that brought people together regardless of different cultures and beliefs.
“I would like to request the Indian Cultural Centre to bring more Indian shows to Savusavu,” Ratu Suliano said.
“Savusavu is known as the Hidden Paradise of Fiji and I suggest such groups to make an effort to showcase their talent and experience the new environment,” he said.
High Commission of India, Indian Cultural Centre director, Doctor Kamal Mishra, presented a new electronic keyboard to Ratu Suliano as a mark of the the centre’s appreciation.
“For the group this was a wonderful experience and they liked the village setup beside the sea,” Dr Mishra said.
He said some of them shared that in India it was impossible to find clear blue crystal and pollution-free water.
“Itaukei people are very friendly and their bula smile is very unique and I hope they would continue with this same gesture,” Dr Mishra said.
He informed Ratu Suliano that there would be two more Bollywood shows coming to Fiji and he promised that he would bring them to Savusavu.
