George ‘FIJI’ Veikoso is one of the biggest and most enduring Polynesian artists of our time. His golden voice and musical blends have launched him on the world stage as a pioneer of island reggae music. Fiji’s fusion of classic reggae with hip-hop, RnB and jazz set him apart as a performer. His unique style defies the idea of categorizing artists into a single genre of music, giving Fiji widespread appeal and the ability to capture his array of his musical influences.
Fiji’s success comes from his ability to capture the beauty and allure of the island life through music. His early albums ‘Evolution’ and ‘Born & Raised’ can be attributed with the introduction of ‘island style’ music into the mainstream music market. In 1998, he earned the Na Hoku Hanohano Award for Male Vocalist & Entertainer of the year, solidifying his place among Polynesian fans and introducing his music to a wide audience of listeners around the world.
His recognizable energy and remarkable stage presence have seen him perform with the likes of reggae superstars Ziggy, Kymani & Damien Marley, Inner Circle and Maxi Priest as well as soul legends Gladys Knight and Aaron Neville. Newcomers to Fiji’s music will instantly embrace his smooth voice and exotic melting pot of sounds, an epic, musical journey from the centre of the Pacific to the rest of the world.
