The Fijian-Indian community maybe very small, but we are all tied together by certain traditions that are immediately recognizable by all. That includes music and today’s song of the day Masese by Kapena (originally by Fijian artist Sakiusa Bulicokocoko).
Masese instantly transports me to the parties, weddings, and pretty much any get together that involved music when I was growing up. Forget growing up – this song is still played at every big family function.
It may not have always been the case, but I’m so intensely proud of my heritage and this song brings back so many fond memories of my childhood, family and island every time I hear it. I hope you enjoy it. Bula binaka!
