In the olden days traditional Fijian music was written and performed by the dau ni vucu (composer)

The room is silent and theres anticipation in the air as the audience wait with bated breath for the performance to begin.

For many it's a new experience - they are about to be introduced to a new sound, the sounds of Fijian music.

The lights dim and the room goes dark. It's pitch black and the only sounds to be heard are the sounds of the ocean, of waves breaking on the reef and washing up on the beach.

Then a spotlight shines on the small stage in the front of the big room as the slow rhythmic dum dum dum of a tali (Fijian drum) beats.

This is followed by the low thumping sound of bamboo being hit on the ground.

And then a man's voice joins the music - he adds his low chants in time to the beats: The words that tumble from his mouth are Fijian - although not understood by many in the audience, the words are haunting.

The sound of deep clapping resounds around the room as a myriad of other voices join his, all adding their own flavour to this musical stew.

The spotlight grows bigger coming to rest on the group of Fijian men and women sitting in a circle on the stage.

There are three men standing and pounding the ground with bitu (bamboo poles), another is beating a small/ali and now the sounds of a guitar and ukulele are added.

This is Fijian music and for many of those who get to hear it, it's an experience to be treasured and enjoyed.

Traditional Fijian music encompasses both song and dance. In the olden days, the musicians did not use guitars and ukuleles the norm nowadays.

They used the tali and bamboo poles but what made Fijian music (and still does today) was the words or more importantly the language.

In Fiji, there are approximately 300 dialects and they, are what make traditional Fijian music different.

Music is different because no one can read a music composer's mind. No one knows exactly what the composer is trying to communicate through his music. Individuals will always have their own interpretations of what the music means. The same applies to traditional Fijian music.

In the olden days traditional Fijian music was written and performed by the dau ni vucu (composer). The dau ni vucu are traditional Fijian music.

They are the ones who wrote and sung about the everyday lives of people, the wars, the love affairs, the scandals, the happy and sad times.
