About jane resture

Welcome Everybody to Pacific Islands Radio! Greetings, Mauri and Talofa! I'm Jane Resture, Proprietor and Broadcaster of Pacific Islands Radio. I was born in Hull Island (Orona), Phoenix Group, Republic of Kiribati. My father is Polynesian of Tuvaluan/English/French extraction and my mother is Micronesian from Onotoa, one of the atolls of the Republic of Kiribati, as well as the Caroline Islands. They have now made the Solomon Islands (Melanesia) their home. I travelled extensively throughout the islands of Oceania when I was very young and I developed a deep appreciation and love for our unique, sensitive and harmonious Pacific Island music of Micronesia, Polynesia and Melanesia. I developed and introduced Pacific Islands Radio, the very first of its kind, in May 2001, in order to facilitate the promotion of island music to a worldwide audience. This was undertaken as a consequence of a foreseen need to allow the musical component of island heritage to be made available to a wider audience. It is a feature of Pacific Islands Radio that it does allow our music to be listened to and appreciated by people worldwide in particular friends of Oceania who have a love and appreciation of our music in addition to our own Pacific Island people, wherever they may be, and who can now listen to island music from their home islands via the Internet. Music is an integral part of life on the islands of the Pacific. Indeed, the songs and dances are woven into the very fabric of everyday life. Life, love, work, play, the ocean, the gods, the earth itself; they all flow through the music of the Pacific Islands, as surely as the sand erodes into the sea. Pacific Island music is truly the music of the world and is proudly featured on our four Pacific Islands Radio stations! I do hope that you enjoy listening to our Pacific Island music.
