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.

It is interesting to note that two National Artists for Dance came across the Igal Janggay dance in their researches. Ramon Obusan recorded this version from Badjao women of Arena Blanco, Zamboanga del Sur. Orosa-Goquinco also had a field photo shoot of "Janggay" dancers in Sulu, it was later published in her 1980 book The Dances of the Emerald Isles.
