If you are staying in any village, take the chance to join in any village choir or Siva siva (dance) performance.
Each village has their own choir and dancers and they are quite competitive with other villages.
The Siva is a traditional dance, very elegant movements by the women swaying gently and moving their hands. The guys are a littler more active moving outside, sometimes trying to impress the girls. It is all in good fun and a joy to see.
The natural voices of a Samoan village choir and the seated arm and dance movements is a delight. Villages also get together for holidays and take turns performing.
