Guam - The 27th Annual Guam Micronesia Island Fair is well underway. All week long we've highlighted vendors and entertainment and tonight, we conclude our 5-part series with the "Sons of Legends" show.

Despite being the son of local musical icon Johnny Sablan, Matua Sablan admits he didn't really dive into music until recently. "Just with inspiration listening to one of my dad's CDs, it felt like it was time to put my talent to good use," he said.

Hoping to promote and preserve Chamorro language and culture, Sablan has teamed up with a handful of local artists to bring the attendees of the 27th Annual Guam Micronesia Island fair a musical treat. "We will have the sons of legends show. Shiabe Pangelinan, Oston Saralu, Matt Laguana and Sinot Candy Taman, we're going to have a great show and great music, songs like Triste Yu, Kanton Babui, Sugar Daddy and if you like Maloffen Hao, I'll be doing that one," he promised.

Sablan is excited and is pleased to be performing alongside other sons of local musical legends in front of his brothers and sisters of the Marianas. "Me and everyone behind the group we are honored to be part of this event. We are one to share the stage with many excellent artists out there, giving back to the culture and trying to preserve the culture. And showcase our talent," he said.

Sablan promises a great and nostalgic show and says the GMIF will be three days of culture and fun. "Come down, there are lot of fun things - try good food, great music, great shopping and you get to see the type of art work that these nations bring to this island," he said.

The Sons of Legends show begins at 7pm. The GMIF runs until 9pm tonight and continues on Saturday and Sunday from noon until 9pm.
