Bio



    Rako
    is an urban Pacific artistic movement based in Fiji and Australia.  It was formed by a group of
    Rotuman and Pacific artists as part of their quest to gain more
    insight, depth and knowledge of their heritage, to share ancient art forms and stories, but with the freedom to create new work without
    boundaries..




    As navigators Rotumans were always connected to other
    islands..
    the arts, symbology and stories of voyaging people
    were always represented through their work, but with most of our
    people now in cities the culture has changed and 
    our music, our dance and our art is an expression of finding that balance of having you feet planted firmly in your land, but your minds and souls free to
    navigate and explore the world.





    Rako literally
    translated means to learn, or as a noun it means school.





    Rako is symbolic of the organic process
    of creative learning - listening, experiencing, collaboration,
    exchange and expressing this knowledge through movement, spoken
    word, imagery and music.





    As we create we learn



    As we merge we discover



    As we know we sing


Our music brings all this to the forefront.  Strong, deeply rooted in our Rotuman chants, beats and rhythmic fibres of our Pacific connections to Tahiti, Samoa, Tonga, Walis and Futuna and the Cook Islands woven into each song.
