YKPO & Lin-awa Center to offer Workshop on Kalinga Performance Arts

Tungngatong (bamboo tube stamper). Ballingbing (split-bamboo buzzer). Patatag (half-bamboo xylophone blade). Tupayya & pattong (gong playing).  Tungali (mouth flute).

These are among the Kalinga musical instruments which participants to the "1st YKPO/Lin-awa Workshop on Kalinga Performance Arts" will be introduced to.   The workshop will be held on 13-15 May 2010 at the Baguio Convention Center, with the “Kiddie Session” scheduled from 9-12 am and the “Jutander Session” from 2-5 pm.

Only 12 slots are open for children aged 7-14, and another 12 for adults.

Originally conceived as part of a “re-rooting” program for Kalingas residing in Baguio City and Benguet, the program is now offered to all interested individuals regardless of ethnic origin.

For reservation and/or inquiries, send emails to manang Lucy or Len or Popoy  :).
