Oceania- A Hymn for the Pacific

A new song has been produced in Oceania that I would like to bring to your attention. The theme of the song is 1 Ocean, 1 People. It is sung in several languages and by several singers of the Pacific region, representing all the facets of Oceania: Melanesia, Polynesia and Micronesia.

This song is a kind of “We are the world” for the Pacific, sung in several Pacific languages, by several famous singers of the Pacific region; like Vanessa Quai, Laisa Vulakoro, Justin Wellington, etc…Through this song, they would like to advertise, highlight and honor the Pacific and its values.

The arrangements of Oceania were made by IGELESE ETE who is considered to be the best arranger & music producer of the Pacific region at the moment, and he is also the Head of Performing Arts at the “Oceania Center” at the USP, in Fiji.

Unfortunately, I can’t upload the mp3 to this page. But don’t despair! Very soon, if not today, you will be able to find the CD on iTunes. I will also let you know when it becomes available on YouTube.

Enjoy!
