The Meke is a traditional Fijian dance and is a combination of dance and storytelling through song. It embraces traditional song and dance to conjure up the legends, spirits, history and love stories found throughout Fiji. There are many different types of the Meke, from the strong and intimidating spear dance by the men through to a gentle and feminine fan dance by the women or a combined seated dance. It is performed on special occasions but is a regular sight you will behold whilst on your Fiji holiday. The traditional Fijian dress worn throughout the Meke performances are a sight to behold in their own right. The men don traditional warrior costume and the females wear traditional clothing, generally a sulu (sarong) with flower garlands. As with all activities in Fiji, the Meke singers and dancers encourage audience involvement. Members of the audience will be encouraged to join the dancers on stage and embrace the dance together.
