Kalinga Province, ‘Ang Probinsyano’ Earn Guinness World Records!

KALINGA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Sagada Bureau) – The Philippines has just added not one, not two, but three Guinness World Records in one year — a feat never before achieved by any country.

The first two records were awarded to the province of Kalinga for staying the world’s largest gong and pot performances.

The province officially claimed the titles for “largest gong ensemble” and “largest banga dance” after 3,440 gongs played by male performers and 4,681 female banga (clay pot) dancers took part in the “Awong Chi Gangsa, Agtu’n Chi Banga,” meaning “The Call for a Thousand Gongs, The Dance of a Thousand Pots,” last Wednesday at the Kalinga Sports Complex.

Meanwhile, in Manila, “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano” was adjudged “Longest-running Television Series.” The show, starring Coco Martin, ran for 7 years
