    The Dinagyang is a religious and cultural festival in Iloilo City, Philippines held on the fourth Sunday of January. It is held both to honor the Santo Niño and to celebrate the arrival on Panay of Malay settlers and the subsequent selling of the island to them by the Atis. Warriors would dance to the beat of the drums for their offerings and celebrations.

    I love the choice of the shutter speed and the framing. There are layers in this image, movement and drama. A wonderful story!
