Event description

Description

The two-hour program of popular Filipino folk dances, tribal dances and rituals choreographed for theater performance will showcase SAMAHAN’s rich repertoire in vivid and colorful costumes. The exhilarating dances and lively music of the SAMAHAN Rondalla and Pakaraguian Kulintang Music Ensembles promise an enjoyable evening! The full concert repertoire of Philippine dances features the Spanish influenced dances, called Maria Clara, and the rural dances of the peasants in the country side in central regions of the Philippines performed with live music accompaniment by the SAMAHAN Rondalla String Ensemble. Presented, as well, are the ethnic dances and rituals of the indigenous Philippine tribes, such as the Kalinga of the Cordilleras in northern Philippines, the Maranao of Mindanao and the Sama and Tausug tribes of the Sulu Archipelago. Tribal dances and rituals are at all times performed with the beats of gong and bamboo music. The Pakaraguian Kulintang Ensemble, the only one of its kind in Southern CA, provides the Kulintang, Gangsa and bamboo percussion music that accompanies the ethnic dances.

Through the Concert of Traditional Philippine Dances and Music, SAMAHAN endeavors to share with the audience the exquisiteness of Filipino folk dances and music. These dances and music performed in rituals, courtship, and festivals, depict the Filipinos’ rich culture, customs and traditions. The diversity of their dances and music reflects the influences of various races – Indian, Chinese, Indochinese, Indonesian, Malay, Spanish, and American, who came to stay in the islands throughout its history either as migrants, traders or colonizers.
