I am studying sociology and Anthropology, so I understand how the society is diverse and globally united, and also the importance of history and culture in achieving progress in the future through Anthropology. I understand the theme of this event well and as a performance artist, I would like to communicate it to the audience while I entertain them.

It is a combination of Chant, song, dance and musical instruments, where the artist or performer talk about how united we are in diversity, the coming together of people from different historical backgrounds and culture, to form one homogenous group with common goal... The Wikipedia and WikiMania family. The art performance talks about how possible it is to bring people from different countries together and what we can achieve when we work as one. Cultural ululation sends a homely feeling to all that listens, it reminds you of who you are, where you come from, the legacy your heroes left for you, and what you can achieve. It unites cultures and create a feeling of assimilation and blending, unity and acceptance. In the midst of digitalized world, it makes culture relevant and helps to promote it so it doesn't wither.
