Sungduan: TCC-HK cultural dance

Stand Up for Life

ANOTHER opportunity was given to a Cordilleran OFW (overseas Filipino worker) group in Hong Kong to showcase and inform the public about the Igorot culture.

Through the Cordillera Connection Hong Kong’s cultural dance presentation featured during the conduct of BB. Turismo Pilipinas 2019 HK they were able to share added knowledge to fellow OFWs and even those with different nationality about the enriching culture and tradition of Cordillera.

TCC-HK president Rose Marie Ticag Amoy said that through the indigenous dance performance presented they were also able to show all the spectators about the true identity of the people of the region they came from.

“Here in Hong Kong, many still don’t know who the Igorots are. I am enjoining all my fellow OFWs who belong to the different tribes in the Cordillera, not to be shy in promoting our cultural heritage,” Amoy said.

In the event organized by the Federation of Luzon Active Groups (Flag), one of the largest OFW groups in HK, they proudly promoted the unique dances of the Kankanaey, Ibaloi, Kalinga, and Ifugao.

From the parade to their production on stage, they wowed the crowd who also appreciated the way they played the gangsa.

At least 48 groups of OFWs joined the activity which pictured a strong unity and camaraderie among the Filipino employees in the Asia’s Luxury Shopping Capital.

May this good works aimed of preserving and promoting the Cordillera culture abroad continue.
