Bluesky Samoa presented a $20,000 sponsorship to the organisers of the Samoana Jazz & Arts Festival yesterday, as the countdown continues towards the festivities starting from the 31st October to 2nd of November.

The cheque was handed over by Marketing Manager, Verona Parker, to Producer and Director, Leota Peta Siulepa and Chairman, Tuatagaloa Joe Annandale, during a media launch at Sails Restaurant, yesterday.

Apulu Lance Polu, Tuatagaloa Joe Annandale and Seiuli Ian Black.“The festival is educational and it is important for the coming generation to appreciate and be educated about what we have (in terms of music),” said Mrs. Parker.

Chairman Tuatagaloa said the event ensures that the legacy of musos like Harry Miller, Willy Miller and Mavis Rivers live on and that their candles keep glowing.

For Leota, she said their intention is to have an international event that visitors, fans, musicians and artists near and far are compelled to travel to Samoa to see every year.

“It will provide a world class musical and arts experience within a thriving cultural environment for patrons and artists whilst economic development benefits to the Samoa islands,” said Leota.

“Samoana Jazz & Festival is uniquely a joint Islands of Samoa festival combining east and west – American Samoa and Samoa – one people, one language and one culture."

“We have the opportunity to build a world class event that showcases all the things we are in celebration with others from around the world.”
