Jota Dances example...

SPAIN:
Jota Zaragosa


Jota de Aragon


PHILIPPINES (There's so many Jota Dances in the Philippines)
La Jota de Moncadeňa


Jota Manileňa


The difference between Spain and Philippines Jota, The Philippines steps is a little bit slow and the castanets is made of bamboo.
Music used by Rondalla and Guitar..Because of 333 yrs of Spain Colonization. We cannot deny that Philippines got a lot of Spanish Influences
when it comes to culture particularly in Luzon,Visayas and few parts of Mindanao.

The Philippines was ruled from Mexico City as a territory of New Spain, from 1565 to 1821 and as a province of Spain until 1898. I guess
Philippines will forever be attached to Spain due to it's name on behalf of King Philip II.

Doha, Qatar was the Asian Host Country
during 15th Asian Games

they shown their culture and it's amazing =) based
from the event.

ASIAN Countries


I watched videos of other South American/Latin American people who are from other parts of Latin America identifies them as Mexican although there's a lot of Latin American. Same goes with us Asian, people Identifies Asian as those who are from East Asia and other parts of Asia but they certainly forgot those countries in the West and East even some part of South Asia as Asian by continent because Asian can be mixed of races.

Asians during Miss Universe 2011 =)
Asians for me is not a race - It's more on Geographical term
I'm Proud Asian and Filipino

Being a Filipino, it can be mixed of races or even other Asian countries.. it's hard to trace each one of us origins as we can be mixed of malay, indonesians, austronesians,chinese,japanese, indian, european, american,middle eastern etc. so it's better for us to say Filipino is our ethnicity and can also be a nationality, Philippines was once a part of 1st world country until early 1900's where a lot of different ethnicities from different countries settled in the Philippines and the only difference is that Philippines culture is diverse it's like east and west combined.

Sometimes our Asian Brothers & Sisters misunderstood our culture for being a westernized specially our Hispanic Culture influence or even the American Influences and Other Spanish Colonized Countries Misunderstood us as Hispanic (By Physically of course not although some of us may claimed but more on Culture Yes but not entire Philippines due to our Indigenous Filipinos) but the 333 yrs is a long years under Spanish Colonization, our grandparents born and raised following this customs & tradition we cannot just erase everything specially for us who were born in Luzon. There's only few written regarding the pre-colonial times before the colonization.. who are the 1st and real settlers in the Philippines. It is also hard to trace the background of each because some of Filipinos original or Indigenous names was changed due to Claveria Decree those natives changing their names to Catholic Christian Names but it's hard to trace also the Filipinos that has actually a mixed Spanish because of mixing the Spanish Sounding Names to those who were given a Spanish Sounding Names during the Colonization. That is why some Filipinos don't really know their real identity, It's easier for you to trace your roots if you don't have Spanish sounding names.

When I first heard Kazakhstan. I thought they were European specially when I first saw them on Asian Games same as Russia and other parts of countries that has White Caucasian looking. So that is why for me Asian is not a race.

Asian Games

They are mixed people of different races but they are also
Asians because they are part of Asian Continent. But some looks like East Asian though
