Hudhud chants of the Ifugao - Philippines By Bernard Joseph Esposo Guerrero As a continually evolving cultural landscape, the World Heritage-listed rice terraces in Ifugao should be seen and understood in relation to its environment (mountains and forests) and the traditions of its people (rituals, farming practices, beliefs, etc.). It is interesting to note that integral to their life-cycle is a set of ancient songs called hudhud. More than a ritual song, the hudhud plays a key role in shaping and preserving the ways of life of the Ifugao people for more than 2,000 years.

Photo: An Ifugao elder (Igorot group) singing parts of the Hudhud chants. He also showed me an heirloom neckwear that is made of animal bones.
