Collaboration with PYCH Assisted by BIN, Singers from Papua Ready to Perform at the Papua Street Carnival
The Indonesian Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy (Kemenparekraf) will hold a Papua Street Carnival event around the Governor of Papua’s office in early July 2023.
The Papua Street Carnival event is collaborating with the Papua Youth Creative Hub (PYCH), which is under the auspices of the State Intelligence Agency (BIN).
Prior to the main event, a singing audition was held which was part of the Papua Street Carnival pre-event. The Singing Audition For Papua Street Carnival event was attended by dozens of talented singers from Papua. They enthusiastically and in high spirits showed their talents on stage.
In a rigorous audition process, only seven participants were successfully selected to proceed to the next stage. These selected participants will receive guidance and training to prepare for their performances at the main event of the Papua Street Carnival.
One of the participants who successfully passed the audition was Marsanda Imbiri (21). He expressed his happiness and pride for his passing in this event. For him, taking part in a big event like the Papua Street Carnival is an extraordinary honor.
Pride for having passed is also felt by Ino Kyeukyeu (25). According to him, the big event of the Papua Street Carnival is an event to show the talents of Papuan children.
“It is very extraordinary that auditions are being held within the framework of the Papua street carnival. This is an event that will show the talents of Papuan children,” said Ino.
Ino said he was very happy and admitted that the competition in the auditions was very tight because Papuan children have extraordinary talent.
“My hope is that this event will continue to exist, and there will be more big events that show the true talents of Papuan children,” he said.
With the presence of Marsanda, Ino, and other selected participants, the Papua Street Carnival will be even more lively and stunning. It is hoped that this event will become a stage for Papuan talents to shine and make a positive contribution in introducing Papuan culture and tourism potential to the world.
