Fijiguide.com video pick: Songs in the Key of Rugby

Songs in the Key of Rugby from Gary Yost on Vimeo.

I want to thank Gary Yost for a really insightful video. Rugby and Fiji are joined at the hip.

Rugby is a way of life in Fiji, with deep meaning and spiritual significance. It is an expression of the passion and vitality of Fijian males and although their country has one of the worlds smallest populations, they have become a dominating force in the sport. (Perhaps because their warrior heritage is quite recent!)

This short film made on the island of Vanua Levu explores how the player's fundamental connection to their village brings a level of heart to the game that is unmatched in western society. 

At the film's end, Dramea says, "it's all about family." As it is everywhere in Fiji.
