Sagayan



Sagayan is a Philippine war dance performed by both the Maguindanao and Maranao depicting in dramatic fashion the steps their hero, Prince Bantugan, took upon wearing his armaments, the war he fought in and his subsequent victory afterward.

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