To coincide with the 2010 Pasifika Festival, Dawn Raid Entertainment and Universal Music will release Pasifika: The Collection on March 8th 2010, the first ever Double CD Collection featuring all the greatest hits from the South Pacific.

The track listing of 40 timeless hits includes seven New Zealand #1 singles and over 20 RIANZ Top 20 songs. With features from established names like Nesian Mystik, Elvis Presley, Herbs, Tiki Taane and Savage, alongside fresh new talent like J. Williams, Smashproof and Spacifix, this album is a must have for any CD collection.

Pasifika: The Collection is the official CD of the 2010 Pasifika Festival and is the first inaugural release for the partnership, with a planned Pasifika branded disc for the next 3 years.

Pasifika Festival Director Ole Maiava says "Pasifika Festival is honoured to be associated with this great line-up of artists that acknowledges all those that have gone before us and enables us to walk tall as people of the pacific, united under one cause to celebrate who we are."

The collection also marks the first time a number of rare Polynesian classic tunes (previously unavailable in New Zealand) will be released on one CD, including pacific legends Zipso with 'Fika Mai Le Pese, Brother Love with 'Roimata (Have You Ever Loved A Woman)' & Mr Tee ft. Ben Vai with 'Popole Ia Oe'

The brainchild of platinum producers and co-founders of Dawn Raid Entertainment, Brotha D & Andy Murnane, Pasifka: The Collection is set to be one of the leading compilations of 2010.

Speaking on the project Brotha D says "This compilation is the first time on one album that we're celebrating the finest in contemporary and traditional Polynesian music, it's a reminder of how far we've come as a people and it recognizes the influence pacific music has had on growing up in New Zealand surrounded by the pacific ocean, as kiwi's we all have a piece of Pasifika in our heart and this is the soundtrack".
