Background / ContentBecause of the agricultural nature of Maguindanao, the rice cycle is an integral part of life. The story behind the importance of the crop is captured in a dance drama that romanticizes the cycle. Music from a Kulintang and Gandingan accompany the dance and resplendent outfits clothe the men as they share the narrative of the grain that symbolizes many things in their culture.
