EPISODE DESCRIPTION

Hinilawod is an epic poem written by the early inhabitants of a place called Sulod in central Panay.

The word means tales from the mouth of the Halawod River.

Hinilawod is not just a literary piece but also a source of information about culture, religion and rituals of the ancient people of Sulod; showing us that ancient Filipinos believed in the “sacred,” in the importance of family honor and in personal courage and dignity.

This 28,000-verse epic is chanted when performed and would take about three days when performed in its original form, making it one of the longest epics known.

Hinilawod, the musical is taken from this Epic poem.
