Fiji at the Ritz

ISLAND RHYTHM: Legendary island reggae star Fiji brings the sound of the Pacific to the Ritz.

ISLAND RHYTHM: Legendary island reggae star Fiji brings the sound of the Pacific to the Ritz.

The Polynesian reggae artist George Veikoso, who performs as Fiji, was born in his namesake country but moved to Hawaii as a teen, which explains the title of his latest project 50th State of Mind. The jam-packed two-disc collection is a kind of retrospective, looking back at his 25-year career and sprinkled with some previously unreleased and new material. With a foot planted in both Fijian and Hawaiian culture, Fiji has nurtured a dedicated following with his idiosyncratic and mellow sound, which blends love songs with island chants. It’s all exactly what you might need in the middle of a gray February.
