Fiji-born musician Daniel Rae Costello passed away yesterday at the age of 58.
The musician was well known for his suave pacific music.
Costello spent 36-years as a musician in Fiji and released many albums like ‘Tropical Sunset’ in 1979.
One of his songs that resonates with many Fijians and Pacific Islanders alike is ‘Take me to the Island’.
The famed Pacific musician attended Marist Brother High School and started his music career at the Beachcomber Resort in the Mamanucas.
Influenced by Carribean sound, Costello’s music captured many hearts across the Pacific region from Fiji to Port Moresby, and from Tahiti to Hawaii way before the electronic age.
Whilst he may no longer exist, his music has proven to stand the test of time.
