Ms Honey was asked if she could put together a very real cultural group that was not commercialised but fulfilled the needs of indigenous music and passion created by tribal sounds.

“The project which involved obtaining passports and visas has taken two years, but with the help of Morley Iewago who is an employee of EMTV, the dream is now a reality for 10 villagers from Tufi who will travel internationally to Milan, Italy, to attend the Lo Spirito del Pianeta festival, ” she said.

Each year the festival showcases to the world tribal music and an indigenous awareness.

The organisers have funded the group from Port Moresby through to Italy and will look after our people while they experience this amazing journey in their lives.

“This year the Tufi group from PNG will extend to the festival an education about themselves, their village and their life in PNG and display the voice and sound of their culture.

“When people have a heart and soul, the rest does not count, the world can change, when people of the heart come together. Today has changed 10 people’s lives forever” said Ms Honey.
