The old meets the new in Leyte, as tribal customs and rich heritage intermingle with social modernization, territorial upheavals, and the gragile ecology of the region. Still, Leyte produces fine arts culled from this wide array of sources. Sensual overload gives way to comfortable perception. This is the performing arts as can only be visualized by Leyteno culture.
