TRIBU Sinanduloy of Tangub City, Misamis Occidental now holds the record for the contingent with the most wins in the annual Sinulog parade.

They successfully defended yesterday their title as the best contingent in the Sinulog-based category. They also won the best in musicality award. Sinulog Foundation Inc. (SFI) executive director Ricky Ballesteros said the grand parade was a “showcase of excellence.” “Even if the weather was erratic, they performed very well,” he said.

The Sinanduloy Cultural Troupe won their ninth trophy in the Sinulog-based category since they joined the Sinulog grand parade in 1994. Nestor Jarden, chairman of the board of judges for the category, said the performance of the Tangub contingent was perfect. “I admire their precision dancing. Their performance is simple, but a classy and polished production. The choreography is not complicated and relied on varied formations,” he said.

The Tangub dancers, clad in golden yellow Filipiniana and white and gold Barong Tagalog, showcased the different images of the Sto. Niño. Aside from winning the Sinulog-based competition, Tangub also won the top purse in the street dancing category.

Lord Vergara, chairman of the board of judges for the street dancing category, said their decision was unanimous for Tangub. “Tangub has mastered the art of space and the most important thing is they did not treat the Sto. Niño as a prop. Ever since, Tangub has venerated the Sto. Niño and meron silang galaw na distinct sa Sinanduloy (they have some distinct moves),” he said.
