This will be a “cultural voyage” portraying the various names by which Zamboanga was called. From Samboangan in her ethnic character – to Zamboanga Hermosa the “City of Flowers” – to Zamboanga as “Asia’s Latin City” today. This event is in celebration of the WMSU Jambangan Dance Troupe’s 40th Anniversary as a performing group.
This dance concert is in consonance to the national celebration of Philippine Arts Festival 2009 and the Dia de Zamboanga Festival 2009. This is presented by the Jambangan Cultural Dance Company, Inc., College of Physical Education, Recreation and Sports (CPERS), Western Mindanao State University in cooperation with the National Commission for the Culture and the Arts (NCCA).
