Kayamanan Ng Lahi Philippine Folk Arts

For more than 25 years, Kayamanan Ng Lahi Philippine Folk Arts has educated, entertained and enlightened audiences both nationally and internationally through presenting, promoting and preserving the richness and diversity of Philippine and Filipino-American culture through traditional folk dance and music. Kayamanan Ng Lahi’s performance entitled Magkaugnay, which means interconnectedness, shares a selection of dances from each of the three major regions of the Philippine islands and offers a glimpse into the various sub-cultures, including the numerous indigenous and Westernized communities. The performance also reveals three distinct themes about the Filipino culture: it is very diverse, with many cultural communities; nature is integrated into many aspects of the dances; and everyday objects, such as glasses, fishnets, and coconut shells, can serve as essential items for dancing. Learn about the origin and meaning of not only the famous tinikling dance, but also lesser known dances such as lawin-lawin and  torayan
