The LIKHA-Pilipino Folk Ensemble of San Francisco is celebrating its 25th anniversary with a spectacular cultural display honoring the many customs of the 7,000 island archipelago. From the Banga dance hailing from the mountain ranges of Kalinga, where the grace and skill of Kalinga woman are displayed with balancing earthenware pots, to the Semba dance, which seeks permission from local spirits to approve a dwelling or to get guidance in fishing and planting, are just two of the dances that will be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts Theatre in San Francisco September 23rd and 24th. The show, entitled Karangalan, means “to honor”, and LIKHA is bringing to the stage renounced cultural bearers from the Philippines who will participate in the performance. LIKHA is proud to showcase these dancers and to honor the art and culture of the Philippines.
