Updated: Feb 17, 2023


Tabuk City, Kalinga – After setting the Guinness World Record for the “largest gong ensemble” and the “largest banga dance”, YKalinga pot dancers formed the symbolic “Dove of Peace” on February 15 at the Kalinga Sports Center.


Starting in January, the Committee of “Awong Chi Gangsa, Agtu’n Chi Banga” had been visiting each town in the province to orient local officials and the participating community. Formations, including gongs and other instruments needed, were discussed to ensure the success of the event.

On Wednesday, the preparations paid off with their performance yielding an exemplary result.


All female banga dancers across the province had roles to play to perfectly form the “Dove of Peace.”


Forming the head and the eye of the said symbol were yLubuagans, the olive branch for yPasil dancers, while the four districts of Tabuk City formed the lower wing. Rizalians had their formation surrounding the dove.


Municipal mayors, including the lone city mayor, unfurled their banners from the base of the big pot at the center.

Star pot dancers from Pasil and Lubuagan performed their exhibition before the formation of the second wing by those from Tinglayan, Pinukpuk, Balbalan, and Tanudan.


Soon as the dancers settled in their own places, they danced with the rhythm of the gongs until the lead dancers signaled them to stop.


The “Dove of Peace” symbolizes unity and peace among the people in the province, while promoting the local pottery industry, food security, and Kalinga cultural heritage.
