Banga-Mountain-Igorot

Banga






(bahng-AH)

This dance is classified under Mountain-Igorot dances.This is from Kalinga. The dance shows the Igorot maidens go to the river and prepare for a marriage ceremony. They display not only their grace and agility, but also their stamina and strength as they go about their daily task of fetching water and balancing the banga, claypots full of water, on their heads.

Dear Cathy,

I'm looking for a Filipino dance "Binanogbanog". Do you know where I could get a copy of a video?

Thanks for your help.
