The Cebu Sports Center – ( grand performance venue ) yesterday jan 28  was totally rocking. many first timers join’d the anual sinulog festival specially ,two out of three contingents from leyte placed….


The karatong festival of dulag leyte landed 5th placer in the Free interpretation category”… karatong basically means bambo…” karatong festival was the 1st runner-up of buyogan in the leyte pintados festival which is held yearly every june..


The Lanao del Norte contingent 4th placer next to karatong festival……. was one of my un-expected contingent to grab the the 4th place….

The supporters from Lanao del Norte states that ” After all the years of hard work, winning in the SINULOG even for 4TH place is a blessing for all of us who are part of the TRIBU TIBONBOLI of ROOSEVELT, ILIGAN CITY “….




the municipality of carmen was the 1st runner up last 2008 sinulog festival… but now… they landed 3rd in the free interpretation category… i appreciet thier performance ….. specially they change’d thier dance routine and costumes…….. thay also placed , 3rd in the aliwan festival…..


The ALIWAN grand slamer ,  2nd placer of sangyaw festival and two time ((in a row))free interpretation champion lumad basakanon, un-fortunately didn’t make it this year’s sinulog festival(2009)


with thier new concept/theme “corn” (last year banana)….. they performed it yesterday extreamly GOOD…….. they also have a similar costume last year….. and atlast they changed thier dance routine.

The tribu Buyogan was one of the runner-ups in the aliwan festival ( 6th ) and two time grand champion in pintados festival…….with its runner-up’s karatong of dulag (2nd) and alikaraw of hilongos (3rd).. thier performance in the sinulog festival makes the audience scream and shout… their dance routine was quit similar to thier past performance………. they had a great speed great formation and musicality aswell as the effective way of using their props.
