Rotumans open Choir competition

from Peceli
I went to the official ceremony in the Cakobau Park and it was slowly raining. Nausori was full of people from all parts of Fiji. The Rotuman community were the official guests they gave more than $333.000.00 soli.
from Wendy
The Fiji newspapers usually emphasize the financial aspects of the annual Methodist Conference but it is more than that - it's about celebration of the lotu, (church) identity, renewal of relationships with people from all over Fiji, as well as a competition about choirs and giving money in a very public way.

Here are three singers from a Melbourne choir who sang in a previous year, dressed in their fine choir uniforms and holding a trophy, probably for giving the biggest soli. Dr Jovili Meo, Buadromo, and Peceli. The uniforms usually don't make it home, but are given away.

Yeah, they should be smiling. After all they won the trophy. Perhaps they were hungry and waiting for the next feast of prawns, kokoda, vuaka, and uvi or recovering from the last one.
