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 refers to metal fingernails or claws that the dancers wear on their hands as the sinuous movements of pangalay figures are executed. To the Sama de Laut people it is called "solengkengkeng". The janggay is supposed to enhance or magnify the dancer's hand twists and wrist flicks because it serves like a sort of an extension.

From the usual starting position, the Sinalayan, the dance progresses to different pangalay postures moving to a dampened sound of local gongs. Emphasis is however, not moved away from the janggay, the object of the dance.


This dance is indigenous to the southern Philippine island of Sulu. The capital of the once mighty Sulu Sultanate. It stands true to its Malay past.

Janggay is a Malay Dance.

It was brought to southern Philippines by our Malay ancestors when they arrived to our islands from what is now present day Borneo and the islands of the Malay Archipelago.
