Lumad Basakanon Comes Home


Today, Sinulog 2008 Free-Interpretation champ and Cebu’s pride Lumad Basakanon of Basak Pardo performed for the people who supported them tirelessly – the people of Pardo, Cebu City. A few other contingents joined the festivities to honor the Holy Child – Sr. Sto. Niño.


The entire event became a sort of Meet-and-Greet as fans were able to interact and communicate with the members of the group.
