Tinikling performed in Ourense, Spain

TINIKLING
Originally from the province of Leyte, this dance is considered by many to be the most recognizable folk dance of the Philippines. Based off the movements of the long-legged tikling bird avoiding bamboo traps in rice fields, dancers dance through bamboo poles that open and close to an accelerating rhythm. This is one of PAMANA’s signature dances, fusing a few modern elements with traditional movements.

Karatong performed in Ourense, Spain

With some technical difficulties, the show still must go on!

KARATONG
This dance is named after the bamboo instrument worn by the male dancers around their waist. The karatong is
struck to a fast rhythm, in the hopes of attracting good luck and driving away evil spirits. The female dancers dance with sticks that are representative of bunga mangga, or mango trees.
