One of the most well-known Pacific bands Te Vaka will be spreading an environmental message when it tours Samoa next month.

All the proceeds from the concert by the New Zealand-based group will go towards Samoa's environment media campaign for 2006.

The executive director of the environment group, O le Siosiomaga, Fiu Mataese Elisara says while the group's tour of Samoa is an expensive undertaking, it will benefit their campaign to protect Samoa's environment.
