De­lai Hon­oured to be Part of ‘Moana’

Fiji Sun - - Nation - MERE SATAKALA Edited by Jonathan Bryce

Lepani De­lai said he felt such hon­our when he first heard he was go­ing to be part of pro­duc­tion for the Dis­ney an­i­ma­tion movie ‘Moana’. The 26-year-old from Tailevu, who sings bass for Pasi­fika Voices, said that this would be a great op­por­tu­nity for him to be part of some­thing big like mak­ing a Hol­ly­wood movie.

“I have been with Pasi­fika Voices for three years and the jour­ney was al­ways great,” Mr De­lai said.

“Sac­ri­fices was al­ways part of ev­ery jour­ney, but with sac­ri­fices come great achieve­ment.”

Pasi­fika Voices choir di­rec­tor, Ige­lese Ete called Mr De­lai a Basso Pro­fundo which he says “is of a pro­found bass with great low notes, and rich warm tim­bre who brings a lot of pres­ence to Pasi­fika Voices sound and per­for­mances.” Ac­cord­ing to Mr Ete, Mr De­lai is also a fan­tas­tic meke dancer, which adds to Pasi­fika Voices’ Fi­jian cul­tural roots and iden­tity. He said Mr De­lai he was very com­mit­ted to Pasi­fika Voices and added his own per­sonal flavour to the per­son­al­ity and cul­ture of the Pasi­fika Voices fam­ily. Dis­ney’s pro­duc­tion of ‘Moana’ which will of­fi­cially fea­ture the Pasi­fika Voices choir in its sound­track, will pre­miere on Novem­ber 23.

The 26-year-old from Tailevu, who sings bass for Pasi­fika Voices, said that this would be a great op­por­tu­nity for him to be part of some­thing big like mak­ing a Hol­ly­wood movie.
