Watch as quarantined workers sing from balcony

Taking their lead from an orchestrator standing outside the hotel, they sang a Samoan hymn called "U'a Fa'afetai, u'a malie mata e va'ai", which is about expressing thankfulness to what one's eyes can see.

They were also doing this to thank the Australian Defence Force, police and government for their efforts, according to Dennie Teniseli, who filmed the video.

The group had reportedly flown in from Samoa recently. They were completing quarantine requirements, before travelling on to Victoria state to work on farms and in meat shops.
