The Cultural Village Foundation – Katara in coordination with the Embassy of the Republic of Philippines, recently organised a folkloric dance show titled ‘Indayog ng Pilipinas’ at the Drama Theatre.

Philippine Ambassador to Qatar, HE Alan Timbayan, opened the show with a speech that described the deep-rooted relation between the Philippines and Qatar. He described the show as non-ordinary because it has been carried on from one generation to another.

This show represents the culture of different provinces and regions of our country, and given the geographic make-up of the Philippines, you can just imagine how colourful the dances are as it represents each of these different regions.’

Katara regularly hosts cultural shows featuring the different expat communities in Qatar. For updates and more information about these shows, visit their website at
