Independence Day

September 16th is independence day in PNG.  They gained their independence from Australia in 1975.  It is a national holiday and they celebrated by performing a “sing sing”  It is where they dress up in traditional dress and dance and sing.  Some of the musicians played a drum instrument where they had varying lengths of bamboo and would hit the hollow ends.  We enjoyed watching.
