Philippine summers are full of festivals. Almost all major cities and provinces celebrate certain feasts of their local patron saints, complete with buntings, marching bands, street dancers, kids in flower costumes, and beauty pageants. But the provincial government of Ilocos Norte ditched these traditions during the feast of La Virgen Milagrosa and came up with something new: giant artworks at the desert that were later burned.
"I want to see you as a dancer...like the desert gypsy women." This is a line from a famous song of Italian singer and composer Franco Battiato; one of his most successful song! Here, you can enjoy a funny belly dance performed by some students of an Upper School of Como, Italy (Istituto Teresa Ciceri), in occasion of the Creativity Day!
