Anito Baylan

The Anito Baylan is a dance of the Mansaka, an ethnic group in Davao which relies mainly on music and dancing for entertaiment. In the anito baylan, a male spirit leader and a female medium supervise a healing ritual in which the sacrifice of a chicken, the waving of palm fronds, and the rhythmic movements of flickering lights figure.
