THE 39TH SINULOG DE KABANKALAN WINNERS

I was thrilled when I was invited to be one of the judges in the Tribal Dance Competition of 39th Sinulog de Kabankalan Festival. As a judge I had the privilege  to come closer to the performers and take photos on my desired angles.

Each year, I have noticed the improvement in the performance of every participating tribes.

1ST RUNNER UP – Brgy. Binicuil ( Tribu Atiklan) , Tribu Atiklan was also named as Best in Street Dancing; Best in Costume; Best in Costume Design (this award was given to the designer of the costume) and 2nd Place for Best in Music

The history of Sinulog de Kabankalan started when the Sacadas from Aklan was employed by some Haciendas in Kabankalan, Negros Occidental as seasonal farm workers. It was said every January in timed for the AtiAtihan in Kalibo, Aklan these sacadas would cover their bodies with black soot and would dance in the street bring with them the image of the Sto. Nino. This tradition was picked by the fun-loving hacienderos and by the local government unit. But the name Sinulog was adapted in reference  to the Sinulog of Ilog (another town in Negros Occidental) to which Kabankalan once a part of.

  2. Jeandave Navarro Jonota

    its more fun;)

  3. Seems like it was a whole lot of fun! <3

  4. When my friend posted on Instagram his photos of Sinulog, I was so envious because only M. Manila was suspended during the Papal visit and they took advantage of the no-work days to fly to Cebu. I would love to see the street dancers their. Hopefully next year. 🙂

  5. awesome constumes they have there! It really shows how creative Filipinos are! must have been hard on your part judging the different Brgys who participated!

  6. Hiiii! Enjoyed Looking at your pics. I just joined Sinulog Cebu, and have always wondered if it’s at fun down north (am I corrrect, north?). I’m hoping to see another version of Sinulog one day. Perhaps, next year? 🙂
