Pasifika 2010 (Ladies My Way)

Auckland is the world’s largest polynesian city, and the colours, customs and specialties of pacific peoples are on display at Pasifika, an annual festival, now in its 18th year. The various activities culminate in a huge one-day event at Western Springs (Saturday, 13 March, 2010).

The Fijian dance group above (“Ladies My Way”) entertained the crowd with song and swaying hips, and plenty of smiles.

No less cheerful were the action songs of the group of Tuvaluans, below.

  1. That sounds like a fantastic festival to attend. I love the music of the Pacific Islanders.
