Posted: Sunday, August 18, 2019 5:19:23 AM
he Mount Hagen Cultural Show is world famous. Tourists from all around the world converge on Mt Hagen this weekend. It is a once in a life time experience. If you want to view something truely spectacular this is a must see event. Tribes from all over the Western Highlands Province of Papua New Guinea and neighboring tribes from the Jiwaka Province will congregate at 'Kanaga town' Mount Hagen to display their unique 'singsing's (cultural dances).

The show's purpose is to share cultural experience and calm the very-present tribal animosities.

During 1937 Britten composed a Pacifist March to words by Ronald Duncan for the Peace Pledge Union, of which, as a pacifist, he had become an active member; the work was not a success and was soon withdrawn.[53] The best known of his compositions from this period is probably Variations on a Theme of Frank Bridge for string orchestra, described by Matthews as the first of Britten's works to become a popular classic.[54] It was a success in North America, with performances in Toronto, New York, Boston, Chicago, and San Francisco, under conductors including John Barbirolli and Serge Koussevitzky.
