Lumagen (1'03)
Northan Luzon, Kalinga

MIDI sequenced by Noel Tamayo

This is a dance performed at Kalinga festivals to celebrate Thanksgiving. The mountainous Central Cordillera region of Northern Luzon is also known by the term "Philippine Skyland." Inhabiting this rugged terrain are six ethno-linguistic tribes known as the Ibaloy, Kankanay, Ifugao, Kalinga, Apayao, and Bontoc. They prefer to be called by their respective tribal names rather than the collective term Igorot, which was first used by the Spaniards and later by Christian lowlanders.
