Tribu Manubiaw is the 2014 Talakudong Festival’s street dancing and field demo champion

Tribu Manubiaw (Tacurong Central District) outclassed last years’ defending champion now first runner up Tribu Kudong (North Tacurong District) and Tribu Kadsayap (South Tacurong District), who placed second runner up.  Tribu Manubiaw also bagged the Best in Music and Best in Field Demo awards.

There were five competing tribes joining this year’s Talakudong Festival. All showcased beautiful costumes and dances in the recent Talakudong Festival last September 18, 2014. Tribu Manubiaw was also the champion in 2012 Talakudong Festival and a runner up in last year’s competition.

This year marked the renaming of Talakudong Festival street dancing and field demonstration to enticing Hiligaynon phrases- “Lumbayag sa Dalanon” and   “Kiay-Kiay sa Talakudong”. Kiay-Kiay  mean “to walk about or promenade ostentatiously moving the body and buttocks in an affected manner” aptly describes the dance of Talakudong Festival performers.
