Tugub Tribu Ormocanon

This group is participating for the first time in this year’s Sinulog celebration.

The Tugob Tribu Ormocanon is an offshoot of the Tugob Festival, which was first launched on October 20, 2010, in connection with the commemoration of the 63rd Founding Anniversary of the creation of Ormoc City in 1947.

“Tugob,” which means “abundance,” showcases all the abundant products in the city in a festival through street dancing and free interpretation.

The Tugob Tribu Ormocanon joining the 2011 Sinulog Festival is composed of 72 dancers, 30 instrumentalists, 30 propsmen and support personnel out of the total of 181 delegations.

The Tugob Tribu Ormocanon in its appearance in this year’s Sinulog has added a new concept to their presentation because aside from the Coconut, they have also added the Pineapple and the Sugarcane, both known primary products of Ormoc.

It is also believed that the Tugob Tribu Ormocanon has the lowest expenditure of all the participating delegations this year, with an estimated amount between P600-P800,000 in appropriations for their five-day stay in Cebu City.

Choreography for the Tugob Tribu Ormocanon is courtesy of Guillermo Sodomia, a professor of the Eastern Visayas State University and supported by Gilbert Manili, Roxy Bandejo, and Dexter Manalo.
