LA JOTA MONCADENA (lah HOH-tuh mowng-cah-DEHN-yah)

During the Spanish regime "La Jota" dances were the most popular dances performed in any social gathering by the Spanich "Senoritas" and "Caballeros."  The Filipinos saw them danced and imitated them.  The Jota Moncadena is the interpretation and adaptation by the old people of Moncada, Tarlac.  Hence, the dance is named after the place from where it originated.  It is a combination of Spanish and Ilocano dance steps and music.  The use of bamboo castanets makes the dance lively, gay and delightful.
