“The Kainantu Show will feature the Kangal singsing, agricultural and commercial displays by National Agriculture Research Institute, Coffee Industry Corporation, Eastern Highlands Cultural Centre, PNG Power, and Fresh Produce Development Agency,” he said.
“An interesting feature of the Kainantu Show will be the National String Band Festival, which will attract participants from all over the country.
“Some renowned string bands that have shown interest are Paramana Strangers, Sunam Sinal, City Hikers, Gilgilwang, Hornetts of Asisi, bamboo bands from Madang and Bougainville.
“The National String Band Festival is a lead up to the 2014 Melanesian Festival of Arts.”
