 Nagaland Minister for Housing and Mechanical, Tongpang Ozukum observed Naga people as naturally talented and gifted in the field of music, having the capacity of attracting the musical attention of the world.

He said this while addressing the gathering at NER Agri Expo Site, 4th Mile Dimapur, during the inaugural programme of Hornbill Music Festival 2019. While pointing out that Nagas have the potentiality of coming under the picture of the musical world, he advised Naga people to take up music seriously and not just as a hobby. "Considering the musical potential of our people, the Government has established the Music Task Force which has now been renamed as Task Force for Music and Arts (TAFMA)," he said and added that PDA government sought to promote music as a profession.  

Further, Tongpang mentioned that Government of Nagaland would definitely extend all support and cooperation towards the endeavour of TAFMA to promote and encourage Naga musicians.

Tongpang lauded TAFMA and Live Now Events for organizing the Hornbill Music Festival thereby providing platform for musicians locally, nationally and globally.
