TAGUM CITY—This year’s Musikahan Festival have not only highlighted intense and awe-inspiring musical competitions but also made sure that the festival’s “melody” and “rhythm” goes beyond the centerstage.
In its continuing thrust of bringing the music closer to all sectors of the society, the Musikahan Festival staged several outreach performances aimed at showcasing local talents in various institutions during the course of the festival’s two-week run.
