Sinulog

January 25, 2014



Pirms pāris dienām Cebu pilsētā, kur atrodos šobrīd, notika gadskārtējais festivāls 10 dienu garumā - Sinulog. Sinulog ir dejas rituāls, kas imitē upes ritmu, un tas tiek izpildīts par godu Santo Nino (Jēzus bērniņa) statujiņai. Sinulog ir kā saikne starp pagānisko ticību un kristietību (šobrīd apmēram 90% Filipīnu iedīvotāji ir kristieši). Vēsture stāsta, ka 1521. gadā Cebu ieradās portugāļu jūras braucējs Fernāns Magelāns un pirmais iepazīstināja šejienes iedzīvotājus ar kristietību, kā arī uzdāvināja karalienei Juanai Santo Nino statujiņu, kas kā liecina nostāsti ir izdzīvojusi vairākos ugunsgrēkos, palikdama neskarta, tāpēc arī tiek uzskatīta par svētu.

I'm in Cebu right now and some days ago there was an annual festival - Sinulog. Sinulog is a dance ritual, that imitates the rhythm of the river, and it is performed in honor of the miraculous image of the Santo Nino (the Christ Child). Sinulog is the link between the country's pagan past and its Christian present (there are about 90% Christians in Philippines nowadays). History tells that in 1521 Portuguese navigator Ferdinand Magellan came to Cebu and introduced local people with Christianity. He gave the image of the Santo Nino as gift to Queen Juana. There are some legends, which tells, that the image of Santo Nino didn't burn down and survived many fires, that's why it is called miraculous and is chosen as a centrepiece of the Sinulog festival.
The pictures are from Grand Parade - the most important Sinulog event - splendid carneval in the streets of Cebu City.






Šie nagi tapa Sinulog krāšņuma iedvesmoti. Centos "noķert" īsto festivāla sajūtu. No nagu lakām izvēlējos Caronia Simply Red, Bobbie Pina Colada un Bobbie Solar Burst. Kā arī izmantoju apaļās krāsainās kniedītes un apaļās trafaretuzlīmes no Born Prety Store.

These nails are Sinulog inspired. I tried to catch the right vibe of the festival. From nail polishes I chose Caronia Simply Red, Bobbie Pina Colada and Bobbie Solar Burst. And also I used rounded colorful studs and round nail stickers from Born Pretty Store.
