FOLK ARTS IN CAGAYAN

VALLEY
Ibanag folk literature, like any other literature, is the expression of Cagayano's joys and sorrows,
hopes and fears, love and hatred, the very ingredients that whipped up all the literary genre handed
down to us.
The Ibanags, like any other groups of people, meet life in all its naked conflicts: man versus man;
man versus environment or society; man versus himself; man versus his conscience, nay, man
versus his God.
All these conflicts, since the glorious days of Ibanag legendary heroes, Biuag and Malana, and since
the heroic times of Magalad and Dayag, have brought enmity, disunity, divisiveness, lust for wealth
and self, and to use the words of a sociologist, ethnic violence and suicide.
This in the span of some five hundred years, Ibanag folk literary, and Ibanag balladeer, verzista, the
Ibanag minstrel, rural folk and countryside mystics composed and handed down volumes of folk
literature advocating love, peace, justice, honesty, unity, morality, reconciliation and betterment of life
style.
Ibanag folk literature is didactic, moralistic, predominantly sentimental, romantic, socialistic, comic
and spiritual--all aimed at uniting the Cagayanos, brave like the kasi or wild cock that challenges
them to greatness at sunrise; mission-oriented like the Bannag on whose banks their forebears were
rooted; graceful as the bamboo that bends in the winds of challenges; sturdy as the Manga in the
typhoons of controversies.
