Transcript of janggay

Southern Philippine Dance Janggay The Janggay or 'Igal Janggay" is one Badjao dance that is performed to the tradition of the Pangalay. Pangalay being a predominant dance form favorite among the gentle people of the Sulu archipelago. janggay is a set of brass or silver fingernails worn by Bajao (Badjaw) women when dancing to enhance their already bent fingers. There are short unadorned janggay nails and there are longer ones that are flower tipped. (The fingernails also mimic the claws of the birds and is considered one of the “bird” dances.)* This dance has taken its name from the janggay fingernails and could be performed by a couple of women, 4 or more. Boat weddings, Muslim festivals and Ramadan become the reason to celebrate and perform janggay dance. Costume: Loose topper called biyatawis made of silk or metallic brocade cut in the stype of the Japanese happy coat; loose pants called sawal of the same material; shoulder band usually in malong form (tubular skirt) of the same material but of contrasting color and design Accessories: 10 janggay nails; a pair or earrings

Head decor: veil called putong of a meter square made of silk or flimsy material attached to the back of the head or a bun (pusod). From the usual starting position, the Sinalayan, the dance progresses to different pangalay postures moving to a dampened sound of local gongs.
