Categories: , ,

SOUTH COTABATO's Me'dal Kolon Datal Dance and Theater Ensemble won the coveted Best Performance Award in the 5th Sabah International Folklore Festival 2010  at the Sabah Cultural Centre in Malaysia, July 24, 2010.

Me'dal Kolon Datal showcased the rich cultural heritage of South Cotabato in dances choreographed by Marella Ferrer and Vivien Marie Ferrer and with Butch Ferrer as artistic director.

Despite the lack of support from the government, the dance group was still determined to join the festival and decided to spend their own money for their travel to Malaysia.

Their sacrifice paid off when their performance bested those of other participating groups from Taiwan, Indonesia, Thailand, Singapore, Kazakhstan,  Uzbekistan, Latvia, India, China, Egypt, and Saudi Arabia.

Congratulations to Me'dal Kolon Datal Dance and Theater Ensemble for another world-class feat that Filipinos can be proud of.

Here is compilation video I found on YouTube of previous performances of Me'dal Kolon Datal prior to the Folklore Festival in Malaysia:
