#FilipinoCulture

The Tinikling is a traditional Philippine folk dance which originated during the Spanish colonial era. The “tinikling” involves two people beating, tapping, and sliding bamboo poles on the ground while one or more dancers step over and in between the poles in a dance. The dancers avoid being trapped by the two bamboo poles. The music played is usually a serenade that uses a Filipino stringed instrument called a “rondalla”.

The dance imitates the movement of the tikling birds as they walk between grass stems, run over tree branches, or dodge bamboo traps set by rice farmers. Dancers imitate the tikling bird's legendary grace and speed by skillfully maneuvering between two large bamboo poles.

Here is a recent picture of me in my recent Bohol trip trying to dance the tinikling. I was not a good dancer because I have two left feet.
