Kalinga to stage 'Awong Chi Gangsa'

TABUK CITY, Kalinga - The Provincial Government plans a repeat of the spectacular show “Awong Chi Gangsa” during the 2015 Kalinga day and Ullalim Festival, this time with the participation of the private sector, particularly schools in this city.

Awong Chi Gangsa or “Sound of a Thousand Gongs” with more than 1,000 dancers from all over the province clad in the native costume dancing the cultural dance “Tadok” of the iKalingas with the sound of the gong locally called gangsa, was first featured during the 19th Kalinga Founding Anniversary and Ullalim Festival on February 14, 2013.

Dr. Amelia Miranda, organizer of “Awong Chi Gangsa”, presented in a press briefing her plan to make it as a major activity in the province's founding anniversary.

Organizers and aldermen want a bigger show to include students from the different schools to instill in their hearts and minds the value and beauty of the rich and preserved cultural heritage of Kalinga.(Peter Balocnit)
