Black Rose

Black RoseFrom Fiji Islands

"The music of Black Rose ranges from Fiji's traditional meke vocals mixed with modern dance music, to styles influenced by the "raga" and even the bossa nova." Calabash Music

Wildly popular in their home country, Black Rose is, without a doubt, the most popular Fijian group in the Pacific. And their intriguing blend of tribal chants, traditional rhythms and modern arrangements is drawing the attention of world music audiences around the globe. With a style that's all their own - described as 'euro-dance meets pacific reggae' - Black Rose has been performing traditional Fijian classics with a twist for over nine years. The soul of Fijian music has been rekindled.
