The word “sa ilaw is” Tagalog for “in light” and it also means the 3 oil lamps which a dancer must balance – one on the head and one on the back each hand. The oil lamp is known as tinghoy. Occasionally, candles in glasses are utilized rather than an oil lamp.


The song that the pandanggo sa ilaw is right now frequently danced was composed by Col. Antonio R. Buenaventura, a National Artist for Music and also a native of Bulacan. He composed the music in the early 1930's while teaching at the Conservatory of Music at the University of the Philippines.

Filipino students perform this dance through balancing books on their head.
