Mga Dagway Sang Ga Lumbayag sa Dalanun ( Faces that frolick on the street)

I’ve covered quite a few Talakudong festival in the past. This year, I’d like to shoot on a different inspiration. I will shoot for emotions, faces, expressions from the people in the Talakudong Festival itself.

lumbayág, To run about, run to and fro, to frolic, sport, frisk. Ang mga bátà nagalumbayág sa latagón. The boys are running about (frolicking) in the open field. Ginalumbayagán níla ang nakawáan sang bánwa. They are running about in the town-square. (cf.kuyámpad, kuyápad, dalágan, hámpang, patabáyag).

This year is quite unique, with the two tribe additions from Polomolok and Sto Nino as guest performers. They are non competing contingent however. What’s really interesting is the scorching heat from the sun, blasting the dancers. Amidst this conditions, I am awed by the stamina and resilience of these dancers. If you look closely, these performers are perspiring profusely. Yet, the smiles that emanates from their faces are just as warm as the scorching heat they’re facing!

Hats off to these dancers, you all are winners for me. As a tribute, here’s some of the faces I captured during Talakudong Festival 2015 on Flicker!
