This year, the Hundred Drums Wangala Festival Committee has made the popular folk song ‘Dimdim Dimchong Dachichong’ as the anthem for the festival going forth.
Besides the beating of drums, a competition was also held for best tribal cuisine, titled ‘Master Chef Wangala 2018’. Participants have to entirely depend on themselves from arranging raw ingredients to cooking and serving.
