MunaTo Yesterland & MunaTo International Music & Arts Festival will merge in the 14th MunaTo Festival

SHARE:



   The province of Sarangani is celebrating its 24nd founding anniversary and the 14th MunaTo Festival. This festival commemorates the birth of Sarangani province with the celebration of its People, Culture, and Treasures. This year’s MunaTo Festival is slated on November 24-26, 2016 at the Sarangani Capitol in Alabel, Sarangani. 

   MunaTo Festival is coined from two Blaan words that mean “First People”. The anthropomorphic jars found in the caves of Maitum (Ayub, Pinol, and Sagel), give clues to Mindanao’s early history and of the Philippines as a whole. The carbon dated anthropomorphic jars depicts that Maitum was the home of early civilization dating back to the Metal age. The original jars are currently in the National Museum for safekeeping and exhibition. Based on the historical time line of the early history of the Philippines, after the Tabon Cave in Palawan, the next earliest pottery is found in Pinol Cave in Maitum. Thus the claim that in Mindanao, the First People or “Munah To”, possibly are from Maitum, Sarangani Province.

   Sarangani Province was born through the efforts of Congressman James L. Chiongbian in 1992, by the passing of Republic Act 7228. Formerly the area was part of the 3rd District of South Cotabato. It became a separate province on May 19, 1992. Sarangani province is young province with a very long and rich history. 

   MunaTo Festival is a festival that was conceptualized in 2002. The idea was to create a cultural festival that would celebrate the vibrant diversity of Sarangani Province. It has been celebrated yearly bringing the 7 municipalities of Sarangani together and featuring the best in each town.

   For this year, MunaTo Festival will merge the MunaTo Yesterland and MunaTo International Music and Arts Festival. In 2015 Malaysian Sape Player, Mathew Ngau Jau from Sarawak performed live in Sarangani. This year, the Indonesian Consulate of Davao will be taking part by giving cultural exchange on their instruments and also engage in a music and dance performances.

   They are also introducing the MunaTo Cultural Village and show where groups will be entertained with Sarangani’s cultural diversity and story called “Thread of Life”. It is a one-hour show depicting different cultural themes celebrated in Sarangani from death to life, and from farming and harvest, and marriage and celebration of peace practices. This one-hour show will then end with the showcase of the authentic food served by the community kitchens of Sarangani. 

   The festival will hold the second run of the PLATFORM IN SARANGANI, whereby great speakers come and share their insights on interesting topics. This year we will be graced with the presence of Secretary Gina Lopez, (former) Sec Raffy Alunan, and PNP General Ronald Bato Dela Rosa. 

   The festival will also showcase Pearl of Sarangani where beautiful young ladies from all 7 municipalities vying for the crown of the most beautiful woman in Sarangani Province.

   They are also holding the Sarangani Youth Day with over 800+ Youth leaders of the province gather to share their advocacies and make a stand on how they want to shape the future of Sarangani province. Their special guest, Commissioner Aiza Seguerra (National Youth Commission) will be with them and be one of the main speakers.
