Thousands of audience gathered at Men-Tsem-Tse ground in Tawang to witness the event, which started on September 16 this year and was inaugurated by Chief Minister Pema Khandu who is also the chief Patron of Film federation of Monyul. This event was initiated way back in 2010 by Khandu when he was not in politics, an official release informed here on Tuesday.
Khandu’s concern for preservation of folk songs and to attract the youths towards rich traditional songs made him initiate this mega singing hunt and so far the platform has produced many local talents in the field of singing, one among those is Thupten Tsering who recently gave programmes in European countries.
The event is being conducted after every three years. The first was held in 2010 and the second in 2013.
