West Papua is a land of song

As an integral part of Indonesia and just like other islands in Indonesia, West Papua is a land of song . With more than 300 hundreds of different languages, biodiversity and creative arts, the land is sometimes called the Bird of Paradise. Christian missionaries disapproved of Papuan folk music throughout the colonial period of the country’s history. Even after independence, the outside world knew little of the diverse peoples’ traditional music genres. The first commercial release to see an international audience didn’t occur until 1991 (see 1991 in music), when Mickey Hart’s Voices of the Rainforest was released. Indonesian government is very supportive to creative arts and music to its people, however the political conflict in West Papua has brought a very distressful situation for musician, especially when their soul of song related to social and political critics to the New Order government. Most Indonesian musician who actively criticise the government are repressed

Today Indonesia is democracy, West Papua just like Jakarta, West Java, Central Java, East Java, Lampung, Sumatra, and many other provinces can strongly build itself a s a land of song.

Sadly, some opportunist idler like Jay Griffiths, Dominic Brown and an escaped muderer like Benny Wenda are continuing to spread lies in the UK. Please be careful with their demonic propaganda to provoke bloody conflict in the peaceful land of Papua.

    I recently read about the genocide in West Papua for the first time in an article written by Jay Griffiths. May I ask what her lies are that you are referring to?

      If you read webster definition of genocide and learn the history of genocide you will see that the article written by Jay Griffiths is full of lies. Please read impartial report on conflict in west papua from SIPPRI (Sweden Think Tank) or IISS based in London, they have a more balance report on conflict in West Papua. ICG (Brussels) is also a better source of understanding conflict in West Papua, not cheap propaganda from Benny Wenda’s lover like Jay Griffiths.
