The word Sinulog comes from the Cebuano adverb sulog which roughly means “like water current movement;” it describes the forward-backward movement of the Sinulog dance. The dance consists of two steps forward and one step backward, done to the sound of drums.

Sinulog Festival is an adaptation of famous Ati-atihan festival of Kalibo, Aklan.
