Naga is a city in the Bicol Province in the Philippines. The

Bamboo dance you're referring to is called "Tinikling" It's name

after a bird "Tikling" or roadrunner in English. The bamboo

resembles a bird-trap that try to capture this tikling, and the

dancers hopping inside and out of the clapping [two] bamboos are

the tikling. see web link "Tinikling" on left for a sampler
