The UPLB SANDAYAW Cultural Group, formed in July 2, 2004, aims to promote cultural awareness through Philippine folk and ethnic dances. The group is composed of students from the different colleges of the University of the Philippines Los Baños bound by their passion to dance and to be bearers of the country’s rich tradition. These students continue to stand together, and stomp their feet to the sounds of the rondalla, gangsa, agong, and the kulintangan.
Sandayaw is a university-based organization recognized by the UPLB Office of the Student Affairs and is under the Office for Initiatives in Culture and the Arts.
