Pagaddut : An Ifugao Tribal Dance

Ifugao is one of the best tourist destinations in the Philippines because of its world-famous Banaue Rice Terraces considered to be the Eight Wonder of the World. It is an ancient sprawling man-made structure declared as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

It is not only to nature where Ifugao is gifted with best attractions but also to its culture. The province boasts of the cultural community where unique musical instruments are played and they do wonderful dances.

An ethnic ensemble from Ifugao rendered a wonderful dance performance during the cultural night held in Laoag City in celebration of the Sunrise Festival. Young people from Lagawe composed the dance group and portrayed the pagaddut dance. The delegation was headed by Ms Roxan Ardessa.
