Filmed on the Fiji Island of Viti Levu, ‘Daily’ takes you on a journey through Pacific Harbour & along the Coral Coast to Momi Bay capturing the majestic scenery and lifestyles of the local Fijian people.
‘It has always been a dream to film on my island home and to share the natural beauty of the people and the landscapes of Fiji. I’m ecstatic that I was able to connect with Misstez from Terri Creatives to make it happen,’ said MC Trey.
The song is a hip-hop/trap styled track produced by the super talented Australian producer Chasm from Astronomy Class fame. ‘Daily’ is a smooth summery tune, with lyrics speaking of social issues and changes taking place locally and on a global scale and the first single from her long awaited album. The chorus features melodic vocals by MC Trey.
‘My songs have always been a mix of social commentary, party vibes & personal reflection. Although I’ve been a writing and performing for over 15 years, gracing stages around Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, USA, UK and Japan. ‘It’s been a few years since I released a solo tune and I look forward to sharing my new music,’ said MC Trey.
The ‘Daily’ launch party is a free all-ages Fiji themed hip-hop event featuring the world premier of the video, live performances with Pacific foods on sale.

Bula Hibiscus kicks off Sydney’s Pacific Festival Season for 2016.
Bula Hibiscus Festival was successfully launched in January 2015 with over 10,000 people in attendance. On January 30, 2016, 2016 Event Producer Sashi Lal aims to present another successful, cohesive and inclusive Festival, presented in partnership with Sydney organisations, Tapastry & Kokonutvibe.
Bula Festival 2016 aims to continue to provide a memorable experience which brings together the diverse cultures of Fiji and the Pacific to celebrate and start the new year in harmony. The event will feature all day entertainment, food stalls, cultural stalls and business stalls from the Pacific. One of the highlights is the popular Beauty Pageant which aims to promote what it means to be an urban Fijian/ Pacific woman, plus providing a platform for our Fiji young women to network and develop vital skills which can assist them in all aspects of their lives. The first prize is a return trip to Fiji sponsored by Guru Travel, Liverpool.
We are also pleased to announce the recent addition of Ethnic Model Management to oversee the Bula Hibiscus Beauty Pageant and look forward to the exciting possibilities that lay ahead.

Such an honour to be in the presence of great women. Bankstown Arts Centre and Vyva entertainment invited us to speak on all things hip hop and female. Of course the convos got deep with the discussions delving into the ideas of feminism within hip hop whilst drawing on our personal experiences. Very interesting – and perhaps the beginning of a new space for female hip hop dialogue an expression? TBC…
In November 2014, four Pacific canoes sailed from the Cook Islands, Samoa, Fiji and Aotearoa to join us in Sydney highlighting the impact of climate change in the Pacific. Tapastry partnered with the Mua Voyage, Kokonut Vibe and the Australian National Maritime Museum to present the Oceania Festival featuring some of Sydney’s finest cultural practitioners and the Pacific sailors of the Mua voyage.
