Solidarity through song: Tongan musician hails Pacific Unite Concert

13 August 2020

Pacific communities are coming together through song and music in just a few hours’ time, to help beat back the coronavirus pandemic and assist vulnerable nations in the region build a better future.

The Pacific Unite Concert, on Saturday, will be paying tribute to essential workers for their lifesaving effort, and supporting all islanders to play their part in preventing transmission.

One of the musicians taking part is Mia Kami, from Tonga, but based in Fiji, who’s also a climate change activist with the 350.org international grassroots movement. 

She spoke to Julia Dean from our UN Country Team in Australia, about what she hoped the concert would achieve.
