All music written by Te Vaka group leader Opetaia Foa'i and sung in the Tokelau language. Tokelau is a group of islands on the coral outriders of Polynesia - three far flung atolls, with a total land mass of only four square miles. Opetaia Foa'i was born in a Tokelauan community in Samoa, a community deeply and spiritually involved with music. Guitars were introduced to Pacific Islanders by whalers in the last century and are played in an open string tuning peculiar to Pacific Islanders.

Like many of you listening, Coffee plays an important role in my life, the dark aromatic liquid that warms me each morning and perfumes the air throughout the day with the scent of exotic lands. I prefer to drink coffee bearing the names of countries like Sumatra, Kenya AA, Colombian, Ivory Coast, Hawaiian Kona, Zimbabw and Java, of course, the country name whos name is synonymous with coffee. Drink the coffee and listen to the music

This evening it's a pleasure for me to share, once again, "Music From The Coffee Lands" courtesy of the Starbuck Cafe at Mankato's Barnes & Nobles; where you can pick up a free coffee beverage of your choice with the purchase of the "Music From The Coffee Lands."
