The University of the Cordilleras’ Saeng ya Kasay Cultural Ensemble brought Cordillera’s culture to South Korea through their performances at Chonbuk National University (CBNU) in Jeonju.

As part of the South Korean university’s 70th Founding Anniversary and International Students Fair, UC presented a 15-minute routine featuring 10 different dances accompanied by 11 kinds of indigenous musical instruments and performers wearing the traditional attires of Mountain Province, Kalinga, Ifugao, and Benguet.

The other performers in the fair were students from China, Rwanda, and Vietnam.

Consul-General of the Philippine Embassy in Seoul Christian de Jesus said the UC students and their performance promote inter-cultural understanding and friendship among nations, specifically with South Korea.

He also acknowledged the group as cultural ambassadors.

Saeng ya Kasay’s performance is rooted from UC founder Benjamin Romero Salvosa’s vision of making UC at the forefront of preservation and promotion of Filipino culture and values.

Fittingly called Saeng ya Kasay which means “Torch and Shield,” the group resonates its role in sharing and preserving the rich Cordilleran heritage.

In 2016, UC entered a tripartite agreement with CBNU and Ludong University in China to open the Asian Cultural Education Center (ACEC).

The ACEC was established to promote and preserve the heritage of each country across Asia.
