About the MassKara Festival
MassKara Festival began at the time of doom and gloom in Negros Occidental.
World market prices for sugar, the province’s monocrop, went down. And its impact was felt, all ones.
A year before the MassKara Festival was born, two artists approached then Mayor Jose “Digoy” Montalvo and broached the idea of popularizing mask masking as an alternative livelihood for the city.
