Palacio de Memoria celebrates pre-war heritage with "Pasko sa Palacio"
Performing on the Palacio grounds as night falls is the Kulturang Kayumanggi Dance Troupe under the tutelage of Ramon Obusan Folkloric Group of the Cultural Center of the Philippines. For over 25 years the Kulturang Kayumanggi created a niche in the world of dance performed closest to its original form. The Dance Troupe under the directorship of Ms. Christine Barrios has served to preserve the dance heritage of the Philippines. “As our first Christmas here right on Roxas Boulevard, we are opening our home to all off you to feel the joy of the Filipino Christmas – there is no place more appropriate than at the estate, lit with parols, and the cool breeze. We are supporting the community of Paranaque City, and your visit will be of great help as we ‘revive’ our own heritage that is being overtaken by Western traditions,” notes Camille Lhuillier, General Manager. The Pasko sa Palacio is highlighted by Los Pastores -- folk dances and songs practiced in many parts of the country during the novenario, or through the Simbang Gabi.
