Members of the FPRA Board and FPRAMAs coordinators celebrate a 3 year partnership with representatives from TABS Investments for the staging of the FPRA Music Awards. 

“It is only natural that we support music given that our work is to do with facilitating great musical talent.”

“Fiji is a small country and our resources can’t be compared to other bigger landmass countries so I believe we can provide Taylor Guitars with high value Fijian products.”

“It is a similar situation for music I believe. We can’t compare with the resources that musicians abroad have but with the right support and the right mechanics, we can show the unique sound that is Fiji Music.”

Tabete adds most Fijians don’t know about Taylor Guitars and he hopes that having the stamp of approval of governing bodies will raise more awareness of the type of music industry we have here.

“As I understand it from our previous work with the FPRAMAs team, we have all manner of expertise in our music industry now. Singers, Composers, Songwriters, Producers, DJs, Music Artists, Aggregators, Promoters, Photographers, Events Organisers and publicists. Well now you know that Fiji wood is what they use to make some of the world’s finest guitars too!”

“This sponsorship shows that Fiji is on its feet! Our industries are strong and we are rebuilding quick from our problems.

“We are grateful that TABS Investment and Taylor Guitars see the value that the music industry can bring to our country and we are excited to be in this partnership with them.”

“Fiji is a small country but we do have quality, quality music, quality musicians and of course the quality wood that makes the world’s best guitars.”
