This new rendition is a cheerful Pacific Christmas music collaboration, available for all Digicel customers across the company’s six Pacific countries, including PNG.
The collaboration includes the popular Jay Lieasi and the talented Bianca Noka from PNG, Stan from Vanuatu’s leading reggae band ‘Stan & The Earth Force’, ‘Big Wilz and Fill’ passionate musicians that make up the band ‘Makare’ from Fiji, Angela Afeaki from Tonga. The Onski Brothers represented Samoa and Abner, Nauru’s leading artist completed the eclectic mix.
Part of a fully integrated marketing promotion, the holiday song reflects the global tradition of having the family come together at this special time of year, a key message of the Digicel holiday campaign.
‘’At Digicel we understand the importance of family and the significance it plays during the holiday season. This year we wanted to celebrate our families and the magical role they play in all our lives,’’ said Digicel Asia-Pacific CEO, Michael Murphy.
This is a track that friends and families around the Pacific can enjoy together. Christmas is about togetherness and celebration, family and belonging.
This song captures the most special part of Christmas for Digicel and the Pacific; it’s all about heart, soul, life, love, and being there for each other – young and old.
Composer/producer of Jamhouse studios Garry Smith worked in partnership with Digicel and Fiji-born composer Peter Maxwell and the collaboration of 8 musicians including vocalists to create the original melody. The song was composed for friends and families to enjoy together and stay very connected around the South Pacific.
