Tagabili-Tribal Dance




The Tagabili (also called T'boli)isclassified under Tribal Dances. This is a dance of T'boil, a minority national group from South Cotabato, in southwestern Mindanao, who is comparatively sophisticated in language, dress, and mythology. This narrates a story about a datu, or prince, who is cursed for killing his brother in jealously over one of his wives. The datu's daughter is to be wed by a likely suitor, but dies as a result of the curse. In rage, the datu sets his village in flames.
