Beyond The Reef: The Music of Samoa Workshop
Workshop led by Rita Seumanutafa
The music of Samoa is a celebration of Samoan cultural identity, whether it is created and performed in the village, or out on the world stage. The art of song and dance epitomises the pride of being Samoan. In this workshop, composer and PhD Rita Seumanutafa will introduce Samoan pese (song) chants and siva (dance). The workshop will also feature Melbourne-based ‘Pasefika Vitoria Choir’; who will show the expressive aspects of Samoan culture which are sure to be enjoyed by everyone attending.
