The Philippine’s National Heritage Month in May recognises the need to create consciousness, respect and love for the legacies of Filipino cultural history. The Filipino dance group will be performing the Tiboli Ethnic Dance and Kappa Malong Dance. Ancient in origin but contemporaneous ethnic dance lives on in the Philippines, the foundation of ethnic dance imitates nature and life, while at the social core, it includes performative rituals that sustains or converges several ethnolinguistic groups. The Choreo Ethnic Tribe Dance group’s cohesive and spirited performances use song and dance as social expression to represent the strong ethnic filipino culture.


The T’boli people are one of the indigenous people of South Cotabato in Souther Mindanao. “Kahimanawari” is based on an old tagalog word, which means “God’s will be done,” also “God willing”. The central instrument is the kuglong, a two-string lute from Hindu-Arabic Mindanao. The Kappa Malong dance originates from the Maranao tribes of Mindanao in the Philippines. The dance centres around the versatility of wearing a Malong, a simple tubular yet highly functional piece of cloth. The Malong is worn women as a shawl, a mantle or a head piece.
