Subli-an sa Batangas
Held every July 23 is the Subli-an sa Batangas. The festival,
originally started as a religious devotion to the Holy Cross,
which later developed into a dance form calledthe Subli, a dance
indigenous to Batangas. Subli is danced to the accompaniment
of a song in four voices:the first voice is sung by the performer,
t the second voice extolls the Holy Cross of Bauan and narrates
the history of Batangas, the third voice is the "Subli"
proper which combines poetry, dance and music, while the fourth
voice features the observer in his search for the lost self.
The Subli is therefore an art
form the culls the insights of the townsfolk and congeals this
into the musical structure so designed that it is regarded as
a "lesson in grace." The Subli tradition, however,
has lately expanded into a festival featuring street dancing
and involving the town of bauan and Batangas City, and
was lately held to coincide with the province's Foundation Day.
