Be enthralled by the melodious, meditative and magical music of the kulintang , dabakan , agong, kubing and listen to the gandingan (the talking gong…and what they are saying)
Be transported into the realm of the Sultanates with the court dances.
Be in unity in honoring, celebrating and remembering the rituals of the rice planting, hunting, water fetching, courtship, and marriage in oneness with the ancestral beauty and sovereignty of the Indigenous people along with the current challenges as they reclaim their land.
Be alert and brisk as you will experience the graceful silat martial arts.
Be there…and enjoy Kinding Sindaw and dance too!
