Rare Sama-Bajau Wedding in the Philippines

The Sama-Bajau are one of the biggest ethno-linguistic groups in the Philippines. Their seafaring lifestyle has enabled them to adapt to the ever-changing landscape of the modern world, all while maintaining the traditions of their ancestors in their everyday lives. 

We met some of the members of the Sama-Bajau community and are privileged to document one of their traditional weddings. Join us as we witness this once in a lifetime experience that is rarely caught on film. 

We would like to thank the Bajau Community of Barangay Tampalan, Isabela City in Basilan and the Isabela City LGU for making this video possible.
