Sagayan

33

Sagayan is a Philippine war dance performed by both the Maguindanao and Maranao tribes of the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao depicting in dramatic passion the steps of their hero, Prince Bantugan, who took upon wearing his armaments, the war he fought in and his subsequent victory afterwards.

Performers, depicting fierce warriors would carry shield with shell noisemakers in one hand and double-bladed sword in the other attempting rolling movements to defend their master.(Wikipedia)
