Kalinga Boy on Pinoy Idol Top 12

I was surprised to know that Sherwin Marquez of Pinoy Idol is Sherwin Bayangan in real name whose father roots was traced in Lubo Tanudan Kalinga Province.He is a mestizo of Lubo Kalinga. He introduces himself as from tuguegarao city for any reason i duno..maybe because he lives their or for any other reasons beyond our control.. so i remember mark cielo of starstruck who claims to be an igorot because he really is is the profile of sherwin marquez in pinoy idol Sherwin Bayangan, who goes under the name of Sherwin Marquez, is 26 from Dagupan. He currently lives with his parents in Tuguegarao. He auditioned in Dagupan.

Pinoy Idol is the second franchise of Idol series in the Philippines (the word Pinoy is the colloquial form of the word Filipino). GMA Network promoted Pinoy Idol as "the first Idol competition in the Philippines" and does not recognize Associated Broadcasting Company's Philippine Idol and its winner Mau Marcelo.[3] It is hosted by Raymond Gutierrez, with Ogie Alcasid (singer, songwriter, and record producer), Jolina Magdangal (singer and actress), and Wyngard Tracy (retired talent manager) as judges.[4][5] Danny Tan is the show's musical director.

The winner will receive P1 million, a house and lot, brand new car, a recording contract with Sony BMG Music Philippines, and a television contract with GMA Network.[6] The show premiered on April 5, 2008.

I can't just think of any reason kung bakit indi nya binanggit ang kalinga blood nya..maybe he thinks it is a downfall, but i can't judge him until he would personally reason out..

Lubuagan launches culture, arts center

Lubuagan launches culture, arts center
PIA Kalinga

LUBUAGAN, Kalinga – The Kalinga Center for Culture and the Arts was launched May 3 at Awichon mountain resort this town.

Gov. Floydelia Diasen was guest of honor together with Dr. Jesus Peralta of the National Commission on Culture and the Arts.

The center that showcased the dynamic culture and arts of the Kalingas was conceptualized and built by National Living Treasure awardee Alonzo Saclag, a native of this municipality. “It was a long cherished dream to build a heritage house for the Kalinga culture and arts,” Saclag said.

He said it was a common desire to nurture the Kalinga cultural heritage but it was only now that the concept was realized. Saclag, a sexagenarian artist who promoted the Kalinga culture and arts around the country and abroad, devoted his twilight years building the center nestled in a mountain some 10 kilometers from the Poblacion of Lubuagan.

During the ceremony, a musical instrument competition was joined by the different barangays of Lubuagan. The “Challichog” and “banga” dances that won fame in a national contest were also presented to the delight of guests.
The Tukon Cultural Dance group presented the Challichog and Pattunggok while the Matuun Dance Group performed the Banga dance. The neighboring barangay of Dangtalan, Pasil also rendered their version of salidummay.
