CONTINGENTS from Tangub City and Barangay Basak San Nicolas, Cebu City were named champions in this year’s Sinulog Grand Parade, which started around 10 a.m. Sunday, January 19, 2020.

The Sinanduloy Cultural Troupe of Tangub City, Misamis Occidental bagged the first prize in the Sinulog-based category, while Lumad Basakanon of Barangay Basak San Nicolas won the Free Interpretation category.

Tangub also won in the street dancing competition.

Larry Gabao, Sinulog-based Category head judge, said Sinanduloy’s two years of not participating in the Sinulog had a good effect on the group.

“They were able to rest. It’s a good come back,” said Gabao.

He said the Sinanduloy has mastered how to showcase its performance and manipulate its props.

“They have very matured movement capability,” he said.

Lordinio Vergara, street dancing head judge, described Sinanduloy as “a total package.”

Vergara said the Sinanduloy has restored the art of performing on the streets.

The Lumad Basakanon, on the other hand, was able to bounce back in the Free Interpretation Category.

Nestor Jardin, Free Interpretation Category head judge, said the costume, props, and production design of Lumad Basakanon had contributed a lot in its performance.

Jardin said the formation was engaging and the transition was smooth.

“They got their act together,” he said.
