Ethnic music and dance are one and inseparable in the traditions of the different tribes that populated
the Philippine Islands (7,000 more or less) since hundreds of years ago before the arrival of the Spaniards in the 14th century and their subsequent 350 years of colonization through the Cross and Sword.

It is with sadness though that these ethnic traditions are dying and seldom performed in their original forms.

The 2009 National Competitions for Young Artists (NAMCYA) was for the Category A Group (10-14 year olds) in the Traditional Philippine Ensembles, thus you will see these performed by the young.

The 1st is from the BAGOBO tribe of Davao in Southern Philippines and the 2nd group are the IFUGAO of the Mountain province in Northern Philippines.

You will notice that these song-music-dances reflects to a great degree the chime-gong traditions of Filipino national minorities.
