PNG musician to participate in Vanuatu music festival

Sprigga Mek, one of PNG’s favourite musicians, has been confirmed to participate in an upcoming music festival in Vanuatu this October.

The boy from Mekeo and Hanuabada will be among a number of international acts, to perform at the Fest’Napuan 2016, to be held from October 12 to 16.

Fest’Napuan, a free-to-public music festival is an annual cultural event which features both local and international artists.

According to Fest’Napuan Facebook page, other confirmed International Acts for Fest'Napuan 2016 include Two-4-One Band (Solomon Islands), Ya'Mune (West Papua),YKSON (Kanaky New Caledonia) and Robbie Mann - Offical (Australia).

Sprigga Mek, a member of famous hip-hop group - Naka Blood and the PNG Underground HipHop Movement, will represent PNG in the festival this year.

He will perform new tracks from his yet to released album, plus favourites, showing his innovative style of hip-hop using pidgin, local language and English.

Sadly, Sprigga Mek revealed to Loop PNG that both his hype-man (back up rappers) will not make the trip due to family commitments.

However, he will be accompanied by Jugu Mahn from Metere Crew to fill in the void.

The group will leave on October 11 and return on 18 October.
