"Never forget the roots of your family"

A little serious of our mind:

 Try to imagine, that your grandchildren can´t speak with you in your language......

Learn your family the language of the roots, so your family - children can speak their language from childhood!

Learn your family the culture of the roots, so your family understand and respect the roots e.g. Mano Po!

We Say Mabuhay - Anthem of the President of the Philippines

'We Say Mabuhay,' composed by the legendary bandmaster and orchestra leader, the late Tirso Cruz, Sr., is the anthem of the President of the Republic of the Philippines.

Unlike 'Hail to the Chief,' the march primarily associated with the President of the United States, 'We Say Mabuhay' is not that well-known.

'Mabuhay' is played during military and government ceremonies in which the President is in attendance; the arrival of the President at any given event and right after the president-elect is sworn in during inaugurals that occur every six years as prescribed in the 1987 Constitution of the Philippines.

March of the President of the Philippines - AFP Military Honors

As the President of the Republic of the Philippines arrives for any event that is affiliated with the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP), this tune, unofficially entitled 'March of the President,' is played by the military band with a twenty-one cannon salute. The march is mostly played before the President greets all the service commanders/branches of the AFP in what is known as the 'Trooping of the Line.'

*Audio derived from the Military Honors for the Fifteenth President of the Philippines, President Benigno 'Noynoy' S. Aquino III on the occasion of the 75th Anniversary of the AFP - Armed Forces of the Philippines; and the 2004 Presidential Inauguration of the Fourteenth President of the Philippines, President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo.

Traditional Forms of Music
by/Ramon P. Santos, Ph. D

There are two distinct repertoires in Philippine oral traditions: 1) musical forms that evolved from Southeast Asian cultures, usually referred to as indigenous traditions, and 2) musical forms that developed in rural Christian communities, more commonly known as folk music. They may be further categorized into vocal, instrumental or a combination of both.

Hindi Kita Malilimutan - Song for the dead

Every year, Filipinos gather with their families to pay respect to their departed loved ones. As with the other stages of life, death is traditionally commemorated through customs and rituals that usually involve music. In recent times, popular love songs are being sung or played during funerals as people say goodbye to their departed. Perhaps the most popular is Hindi Kita Malilimutan popularized by Basil Valdez and composed by Manoling Francisco, SJ in 1979, with lyrics based on the Book of Isaiah from the Old Testament.

MATUD NILA (Visayan/Cebuano Folk Song) 2 versions

In 1941, at the outbreak of the second World War, a guerilla fighter from Cebu in central Philippines named Ben Zubiri composed the song Matud Nila ("They Say" in English). Pilita Corrales born also in Cebu was only two years old then, a mestiza, (of Spanish and Austronesian) ancestry. It was Pilita's impeccable rendition of the song in the 1960's that made it so popular and labeled by some as the cultural anthem of the Cebuanos.

Kulibit - kollitong - saluray - togo or takumbu and many more local names

The kulibit is a type of an idiochord tube zither. Narrow lengthwise cuts are made on the surface of a bamboo tube. A wedge is inserted under the cuts forming two strings out of the bamboo itself. The player holds the bamboo tube vertically in front of the body, supporting it with the palms of both hands. The thumb, middle and index fingers pluck the strings in alteration to produce short melodic ostinati.

It is the zither played by the Kalinga people of the Philippines. The instrument consists of a long tube of bamboo which has been slit to allow five or six strands of the bamboo husk to be played as "strings". The instrument is also played by the Bontoc and Tinguian people who call it the kollitong, and the Manobo and Tiruray people, who call it the saluray, togo or takumbu.

The modern bandurria has 12 strings (6 pairs). The strings are tuned in unison pairs, a major-third above a standard guitar, to G#, c#, f#, b, e and a

Local Maguindanaon musicians play traditional music

on kulintang, gandingan and agong (assortment of gongs) in Al Jamelah Weaving Center, Datu Odin Sinsuat, Maguindanao. Overshadowed by corruption and impunity currently magnified by the press, “Maguindanao" stands for a rich and proud centuries-old heritage that forms the multifarious fabric of Philippine culture. The highlight of visiting Datu Odin Sinsuat, Maguindanao (near Cotabato City) was witnessing an impromptu performance of traditional Maguindanaon music at Al Jamelah Weaving Center, known for its handwoven 'inaul' textile. The Maguindanao people are a Muslim ethnolinguistic group belonging to the much larger Moro peoples of Mindanao. Cultural worker Akmad Wampa (left) heads a community dance troupe for underprivileged and out-of-school youth. Like all the other indigenous cultures in the Philippines, Maguindanao culture and arts are threatened by modernization and, sadly, the indifference of younger generations to continue traditional knowledge and practices. - Look also the above link

Easter Vigil: Papuri Sa Diyos - Tagalog for Glory to God in the Highest

This is the Roman Catholic 'Gloria' sung in Tagalog whose tune was composed by Philippine composer E. P. Hontiveros. The Choir singing is from Cavite City and this was the Gloria on Easter Vigil which proceded the seventh reading (Ezekiel) and preceded the Epistle (Romans). This was performed on the recently restored (2006) Pels & Sons four-manual pipe organ of 104 ranks at the Manila Cathedral, Basilica Minor of the Immaculate Conception, Intramuros, Manila. This is the largest pipe organ in all of Southeast Asia.

 Oral & Intangible Heritage - the Maranao people - The Darangen

The Darangen is an ancient epic song that encompasses a wealth of knowledge about the Maranao people who live in the Lake Lanao region of Mindanao. This southernmost island of the Philippine archipelago is the traditional homeland of the Maranao, one of the country's three main Muslim groups.

Although other variations exist among the Maranao ethnic communities living in other areas, among the Maguindanao ethnic group, and Manobo groups to the Pacific Coast. The one in Lanao del Sur is considered the most definitive.

Oral & Intangible Heritage - Ifugao Hudhud

The Hudhud Chants of the Ifugao

The Hudhud consists of narrative chants traditionally performed by the Ifugao community, which is well known for its rice terraces extending over the highlands of the northern island of the Philippine archipelago. It is practiced during the rice sowing season, at harvest time and at funeral wakes and rituals. Thought to have originated before the seventh century, the Hudhud comprises more than 200 chants, each divided into 40 episodes. A complete recitation may last several days.
