Kutubu Kundu and Digaso Festival

The Kutubu Kundu and Digaso Festival offers a rare treat of fascinating cultural performances from all over the Southern Highlands.

The 2019 Kutubu Kundu & Digaso Festival takes place September 19th to 21st at Daga Village, beside Lake Kutubu.  This year's theme is: "Strongim na Wok Bung Wantaim" (strength and cooperation).  

This special event celebrates the importance of the kundu drum and the Digaso oil in the traditional culture of the Kutubu people in the Southern Highlands Province.

Hosted near the famous Lake Kutubu, Papua New Guinea's second largest lake, local communities put on a singsing spectacle and unite in a show of support and respect of each other’s cultural differences.  Performers travel from remote parts of the province to participate in the festival celebrations.

The people of the Southern Highlands invite you to join them in this special tribute to their incredible culture.
