Tuesday Open Thread | Cultural Music and Dance

The tinikling dance  is one of the most popular and well-known of traditional Philippine dances.[1] The tinikling is a pre-Spanish dance from the Philippines that involves two people beating, tapping, and sliding bamboo poles on the ground and against each other in coordination with one or more dancers who step over and in between the poles in a dance. The name is a reference to birds locally known as tikling, which can be any of a number of rail species; the term tinikling literally means “tikling-like.”[2]

Tinikling involves five steps; during the first four steps, the dancers dance opposite each other, and during the last step, they start from the same side of the poles. The bamboo is also used as a percussive instrument as it is banged against the ground (or a piece of wood to make it easier to hold) and each other in a pattern.

    Good morning 3 Chics. I live in Washington so yes, it’s still morning. Here, all voting is done by absentee. I dropped mine off last week, but my wife dropped hers off after her night class last night. Last night it was foggy and cold and after 10:00 there was still a LINE to drop ballots. This state is blue, blue, blue. Enthusiasm gap my ass. :)
