VOU is Fiji’s premiere independent music and dance company. Founded in 2007 as a collective of urban Fijian artists VOU is the blending of old and new, traditional and contemporary. VOU draws on our rich ancient heritage and makes it relevant to our lives that are now immersed in our globalised world of Facebook, mobiles and increasing urban drift we are Fiji… NOW.
VOU has conducted research in various villages and provinces throughout Fiji to research traditional chants and dances to preserve culture and ensure it becomes living and relevant to today’s youth.
VOU is the most widely toured contemporary Pacific based dance company and now has one branch of the company permanently based in Shen Zhen, China. VOU believes in the arts being a powerful means to creating awareness of current issues such as environmental sustainability, gender equality, and climate change.
