Sing-sing in (e.g.) Mt. Hagen is a gathering of many tribes in Papua New Guinea. The aim of these gatherings is to peacefully share traditions. Up to 100 tribes arrive to show their music, dance and culture. The festival started in the mid-1950s as an initiative of Australian Kiaps. In recent years it has become a major attraction for both national and international tourists and remains the largest cultural event in Papua New Guinea!

Location: Papua New Guinea
