Samoan family vocal trio speak ahead of their Royal Albert Hall debut


Tenor brothers Pene and Amitai Pati and their cousin Moses make up the cheery Samoan trio known as Sol3 Mio, specialising in opera - and off-the-cuff banter.

They are making their Royal Albert Hall debut at Classic FM Live. 

Classic FM's Jane Jones caught up with them before their performance to ask them about how they got into opera singing, and how their nerves were bearing up.

"You can't really describe it to be honest," said Amitai. "As a kid listening to some of the great opera artists singing in this very place, it's quite unbelievable - definitely unbelievable."  

"It's a huge milestone for us to be here and to be able to perform here at all - and at the same time we are very excited...and hopefully we can show everybody what we can do."

And this is what they do... It was amazing
