Ati-atihan 2015

Pounding drums; blackened bodies of dancers; colorful and elaborate costumes—they all paint dramatic, visual stimulation. Kalibo's Ati-Atihan is held every third week of January, and is one of the Philippines’ most recognizable festivals.

Kalibo comes from the Akeanon word, “sangka libo” (one thousand). It was the number of natives once converted to Christianity, when Christian friars adapted the festival to honor the Santo Niño (Holy Child Jesus), and set it to the third Sunday of January.
