SOLOMON Islands continue to shine at the 13th Festival of Pacific Arts and Culture (FestPAC) in Honolulu, Hawaii this week as dancers and musicians put another electrifying show at Waikiki Beach Walk area on day six of the festival.

The show was opened by the Wa’uraha panpipers that mesmerized the crowd, some of whom have never heard of panpipe music and dance before.

They cheered and swayed to the sounds and melodies performed by the boys.

The panpipers were followed by the Tasalau dancers who performed Malaita’s popular Mao dances and other contemporary dances that stunned the crowd at Waikiki.

Winding up the performances were the Kaumakonga ethno music band from Rennell and Bellona Province.

Meanwhile art and craft exhibitions and other demonstrations continued throughout the week at the main festival village.
