Nicanor Abelardo - Cavatina
Santos, a Filipino teacher in Karuhatan National High School who was hailed Reyna ng Kundiman, has been singing since she was young and started singing the musical form in college. Sa kundiman, may sistema na dapat aralin ng singer. She always has to sing using the head tone and chest tone.
Competition judge and Valenzuela City Choral choirmaster Arthur Esguerra said a serious singer of kundiman should pay attention to the sudden shifts in tone in a kundiman. But it was the simply the way back then. Munting Prinsipe ng Kundiman: Cabagay, Karuhatan West Elementary School.
Munting Prinsesa ng Kundiman: Reyes, San Diego Parochial School. Workers for the Companies, Jobs for the People.
Two New Health Stations Inaugurated. What a priceless posession it is to have this recording of authentic serenaders of the past, like time travelling to listen to the sweet, romantic melodies at the time of my grandfathers.
Two of these masters have died this past year, which makes this album the more priceless. It is such a heavenly experience to listen to their untiring way of singing, expressed in beautiful lyrics and written using masterful language. The guitar by classical guitarist Florente Aguilar is also supreme.
I was looking for traditional Pilipino music and came upon the Harana Kings.Michelangelo Art Documentary. Aritst and Man. Biography film.
The combination of raw vocals and the intricate sounds of the guitar make this an understated masterpiece. I will introduce this to my children in hopes that they pass it on to their children. This is a cherished cultural memento that needs to be shared! Vocal and instrument recording are spot on, giving the aura of times past, that may never come again.
Play these tunes at early quiet evenings and feel transported back in time! Invite these men inside It is very easy to cherish a recording like this. It has a fine back story where the young and the old have come together to record a faded tradition, and introduce a set of songs and artists.
Much like Buena Vista Social Club did last decade, Florante Aguilar has gone searching for overlooked and forgotten artists and has assembled a small ensemble of masters. In this case, I believe none of these men has been recorded before. And the results are quite simply stunning in capturing a mood and setting for the harana.
The harana is a custom whereby a young gentleman and his friends played songs at the window of a young lady in hopes that she and her parents might allow him in for some supervised socializing. A Harana is also a type of song sung during this courtship. Our young lady has the upper hand at the moment, her permission and her parents are important, and therefore, the songs are on their best behavior.
Pining and self-depreciation is allowed. Bragging and buffoonery are not.
I like the mood the ensemble sets and one does not need to understand Tagalog to feel what the songs are expressing. The effort is sincere, so I might consider inviting these men into your music collection for listen. Only a couple of generations ago, Harana, was at the heart of courtship in the Philippines. Aguilar takes us on a musical journey to search for these men who helped bring love together.
