Kohima (Nagaland), Sep 7(ANI): With an aim to promote the inherent musical talent of Nagaland, a musical competition was organized in the State.
The theme of the competition was 'Discovering talents to a higher level' and was organized by Pheto Music Association, an initiative by music enthusiast Kasheto Kiba.
Kiba had started the musical competition way back in 2007 to encourage young talent from the age group of 9 to 15 years and this year twelve participants mesmerized the audience with their favorite songs in one of its auditions at State Academy Hall in Kohima.
"I believe that kids for fame would bring peace in our land. Through this entertainment, many talented youth will be promoted not only in Nagaland but I believe they will go further even in national and international level. We are trying our best to help out in such a way that our kids will be promoted and we have this vision that one day our kids will definitely benefit themselves through singing and hope they will bring great change in our society," Kiba said.
This was a fabulous opportunity for students to showcase their talent.
"I am grateful to the organizers for giving me this platform to expose my talent to the people," said Tumchobeni Tsopoe, a participant.
The winner will be awarded a cash prize of Rs.2 lakhs in addition to a one-year educational scholarship and music training at Hope Centre in Dimapur.
Nagaland is rich in talent and if given proper opportunity there is no doubt that the state can produce musicians of international repute in the times to come. By Vibhou Ganguly (ANI)
