The Bundi Komba Festival in New Guinea, chaired by Vincent Ambane Kumura, ’08 , received a helping hand from the Papua, New Guinea Tourism Promotion Authority after being staged for two consecutive years without any outside support.
This past March, more than 20 motorbike riders from the Simbu Bikers Association departed Kundiawa town for Bundi to signal the arrival of the 2019 Bundi Komba Festival, April 2 to 4, 2019. The bikers were accompanied by a local film crew to produce a video promoting adventure and cultural tourism potential in the land of a hundred mountains.The festival is a melting pot of unique and diverse cultures from the four land bordering provinces of Chimbu, Eastern Highlands, Jiwaka and Madang and hosted more than 12 cultural dancing groups with more than 1,000 visitors over the three-day event.
The festival is an initiative of the Kumura Foundation and is supported by key stakeholders such as the Tourism and Hospitality School of Divine Word University.The foundation’s motto is “Live to Serve” and it works to improve the livelihood of the poor and disadvantaged people of Usino-Bundi-Gama through healthcare, education and eco-tourism.
