JR & Joy Dance

I'm experimenting with uploading videos on photobucket, so I thought I would share this little dance with you. We attended my cousin JR's wedding while we were in the Philippines last December, and this was taken during the reception/after party. As I may have mentioned in a previous post, my people are of the indigenous tribe called "bago". This is a modernized version of a tribal dance. If you watch, the bride was a bit hesitant about dancing, but one of the old lolas (grandmas) got in there and showed her how it's done. It was a lot of fun, and the girls got to witness a little bit of tribal customs.

BTW, Jade and I have been wondering what that background music is. I think it is a malaysian song, but we never did find out the name or artist of the song. If you know, please leave us a comment.
