Southern Philippines’ Colorful Kadayawan


On the main day of the celebration the major Davao tribes and various invited non-Davao tribes like the Talaandig, Dibabawon, Sangil, Subanen and T’boli performed in the main plaza. Eye-popping shiny but authentic costumes were plenty in display alongside native musical instruments. The crowds rushed the stage when it was the turn of the T’boli maiden to perform and I was able to see with my own eyes that their reputation was not undeserved.” —Apolonio Baylon, UP Ibalon, Davao City, Philippines.
