Kalilayan Folkloric Group: Polka Biana

Polka Biana
(Zamboanguita, Negros Oriental)
Polka Biana or "Polka dedicated to Biana" was a dance dedicated to a Zamboanguita lady named Biana who was fat lady. Ironically, the Polka Biana does not present heavy or big steps that may fit the fat lady but the insertion of waltzes after two signatures have been incorporated to cater to the size and stamina of Biana, considering that she cannot sustain a continuous dance of polka.
