Disclaimer: Well, I am definitely no fan of the Dictatorship, nor to Meldy and Ferdie’s nefarious activities. Howbeit I have to admit that La Imeldific was indeed La Guapa and a patroness of the Arts. Her works or what remains of them are still a legacy to Las Filipinas today. Ferdinand was indeed an enemy to many hispanists who fled overseas. He further cut down the teaching of the Spanish language sometime in 1972. Here is one song for the colourful Imelda done in classic Tango. All for the sake of Art, of course.

Well, the vid contains interesting State visits anyway.

Fotografías de Imelda Romuáldez de Marcos, viuda del fallecido dictador filipino Ferdinand Marcos.

Canción: Yira, de Carlos Gardel

LETRA

Cuando la suerte, que es grela,
fallando y fallando
te largue parao....
Cuando estés bien en la vía,
sin rumbo, desesperao...
Cuando no tengas ni fe,
ni yerba de ayer
secándose al sol....
Cuando rajés los tamangos
buscando ese mango
que te haga morfar...
la indiferencia del mundo
que es sordo y es mudo
recién sentirás.

Verás que todo es mentira,
verás que nada es amor...
que al mundo nada le importa
Yira...Yira...
Aunque te quiebre la vida,
aunque te muerda un dolor,
no esperes nunca una ayuda,
ni una mano, ni un favor...

Cuando estén secas las pilas
de todos los timbres
que vos apretás,
buscando un pecho fraterno
para morir abrazao...
Cuando te dejen tirao
después de cinchar,
lo mismo que a mí...
Cuando manyés que a tu lado
se prueban la ropa
que vas a dejar...
¡Te acordarás de este otario
que un día, cansado,
se puso a ladrar!

Dahil Sa Iyo

First off, I have to point out that the Mike Velarde here is the musician Velarde who wrote the piece in Commonwealth Era Philippines. He is absolutely not the same person as the preacher guy doing gigs today. If he was, he must have an incredibly long life span equal to those of the Biblical Old Testament forefathers. Not.

This was a personal favourite of La Imelda, without a shadow of a doubt. The song was one of those done in triplicate, Tagalog, English and Spanish. It must be remembered that this was Commonwealth Era Philippines of the 1930s. The great Walled City of Intramuros was still intact before WWII and its many hispanoparlante inhabitants were also patrons of the arts. In fact, many of the old Commonwealth Era commercial advertisements were done en espanyol, like the Coca Cola advertisements published in the forums elsewhere.

This one could also be construed as an early form of a Tag-lish cancion.

U.S. Copyright ©1964 Dexter Music Co. - Words and Music by Tom Spinosa and Mike Velarde Jr.

TOM SPINOSA: "The melody of "Dahil Sa Iyo" was originally written by Mike's father in 1936 in the Philippine Islands at the Manila Hotel where we met on one of my voyages to Manila. We were discussing it way back then. I was the orchestra leader on the USS President Lincoln. So I got acquainted with his father very well but it wasn't until 1949 that I actually wrote the English lyrics to it and made the deal with Mike. When I met Mike Jr. at the Jai-Alai night club in Manila in 1946, Mike did not have the song, but when we met again in May of 1949 he told me his father had given the song to him and I wrote the English lyrics to it.

The agreement I had with Mike was that I would take the tune to the U.S. and try to do something with it, whether through my publishing company or someone else's, and if I succeeded placing it we would divide the composers rights between us.

For the last 15 years I've been plugging it by handing out copies to Singers and Orchestra leaders throughout the world. This was possible due to my frequent travels abroad. I have a recording session scheduled on it with Tri-World Records of San Francisco."

Song: Solo por ti [Dahil sa iyo].
Author: Miguel Velarde.

LETRA

Mi vida es un libro
en que todo está escrito,
los mil y un sufrimientos
que tanto me atormentan.
Y si hoy estoy a salvo
lo debo a tu cariño
pues solo tu querer
me pudo levantar.

Solo por ti
es muy bella la vida,
solo por ti
yo no quiero morir.
Bien debes de saber
que tú eres el origen
de todo lo que es amor
en mi escondido edén.

Solo por ti
es feliz la existencia,
y es mi ilusión
a tu lado vivir.
Puesto que ya es verdad
esta dulce esclavitud
todo el ritmo de mi canción
solo es por ti.

Dahil Sa Iyo

DAHIL SA IYO (ORIGINAL VERSION) - Mabuhay Singers


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L6k_pvOFOgc



philclassic | September 20, 2009

"Dahil sa Iyo" is one of the most popular Kundiman in the Philippines. It was composed by Miguel "Mike" Velarde Jr. in 1937. Rogelio de la Rosa sung it in the 1937 movie "Bituing Marikit". The original Tagalog lyrics were written by Dominador Santiago. Sung by the Mabuhay Singers under the music supervision of Leopoldo Silos. The audio is from a vinyl phonograph played and recorded via USB turntable.




************************
ABOUT THE SONG

Miguel "Mike" Velarde Jr. composed "Dahil Sa Iyo" for the movie "Bituing Marikit", the first full length film by Sampaguita Pictures in 1937 starring Elsa Oria, the "Singing Sweetheart of the Philippines" and Rogelio de la Rosa.

One of the most popular examples of the genre of the Kundiman, this "classic Filipino love song" has been translated in many other languages.

Representing an earlier era remembered in nostalgia, it is one of the most popular songs in Tagalog, and a favorite in the Philippines as well as among Filipino communities abroad.

Its popularity in the Philippines is such that some think it ought to replace the current national anthem, "Lupang Hinirang," and that it should be played as such at a possible future state visit by American president Barack Obama to the Philippines.

"Dahil Sa Iyo" has become a standard on the repertoire of many artists performing Filipino romantic and popular music. Its canonical status as a classic Filipino love song was again confirmed by its inclusion on the 2004 runaway hit compilation album Great Filipino Love Songs.

The song is a personal favorite of Imelda Marcos, the wife of former Filipino President Ferdinand Marcos, who sang it frequently. In 2008 the song was still associated with her in Manila: "Suddenly, the heads of Peninsula Hotel lobby guests swiveled. Imelda Marcos had walked in. Without missing a beat, hotel musicians struck up 'Dahil sa Iyo.'"

Speaking of the song, its own composer, Miguel "Mike" Velarde Jr. relates: "Sometime in 1960 a famous US singer who made a personal appearance in Manila presented me a contract seeking authority to record 'Dahil Sa Iyo' in the States. The five figure offer was fabulous but I turned it down - simply because she wanted to change the title to an American title. I couldn't, and wouldn't sell the identity we are trying hard to establish. The merits of the song is its identity.'"

Sa buhay ko'y labis
Ang hirap at pasakit
Ng pusong umiibig
Mandi'y wala ng langit
At ng lumigaya
Hinango mo sa dusa
Tanging ikaw, sinta
Ang aking pag-asa

Dahil sa `yo nais kong mabuhay
Dahil sa `yo hanggang mamatay
Dapat mong tantuin
Wala ng ibang giliw
Puso ko'y tanungin
Ikaw at ikaw rin
Dahil sa `yo ako'y lumigaya
Pagmamahal ay alayan ka
Kung tunay man ako
Ay alipinin mo
Ang lahat sa buhay ko'y
Dahil sa `yo

All-American choir sings like Pinoys


By Edson C. Tandoc Jr.
Philippine Daily Inquirer
First Posted 00:43:00 09/26/2010

Filed Under: Music, Culture (general), Internet, Social networking



COLUMBIA, Missouri—They sashayed, swayed their hips and flashed their sweetest smiles. And they even had the right “p”and “t” sounds.

Filipinos were amazed at how an all-American choir performed the Filipino folk song “Paru-Parong Bukid” with flourish, sounding every bit like Filipino singers.

The video-recorded performance by American college students of Northwest Missouri State University in Maryville has been going around on YouTube and Facebook, shared and reposted by thousands of Filipino viewers.

The young members of the choir Madraliers appeared to be having fun singing an old native song they probably never heard growing up.

The video, which runs for less than three minutes, shows a group of young men in black coats and young women in colorful gowns dancing as they sang “Paru-parong Bukid,” complete with the proper accent and pronunciation.

The Madraliers, composed of mostly music majors in the school, sang the folk song in two concerts in November last year: on campus and at the Liberty United Methodist Church in Liberty, Missouri.

Big YouTube hit

But the video gained popularity among Filipino Internet users only this month.

“When I originally posted the song, I did not know it would become such a big hit,” said Andrew Sanders, one of the choir members.

But another YouTube user reposted the video just early this month—and has gotten close to a 100,000 views since then.

“It just shows the power of music, being able to bring people together,” said Sanders, who has also been getting e-mails praising their performance. “It also shows that the hard work our choir does is appreciated.”

Learning the song was fun, Sanders recalled. “We wanted to get as close to having a correct accent as possible, and since we have had so many comments on how good our diction was, I believe we have achieved that goal.”

Exuberant, refreshing

“I find the style of the music exuberant, refreshing and enjoyable to hear,” said choir conductor Brian Lanier. “I was immediately intrigued by the interesting use of the language, the harmonic structure, and the humor of the text.”

This is the first time that Lanier, an associate professor of the university’s choral music education, taught his choir a song from the Philippines.

Lanier came across the folk song from a collection of pieces he got from a publisher last year, and got a translation of the lyrics.

He got help from the wife of his accompanist Richard Boettner in teaching his choir members the correct way of singing the song. Boettner’s wife Bing is a Filipino who hails from Bacolod City.

“I invited her to come and help me with the language as well as share some insight into the song and its meaning,” Lanier said.

Lanier recorded Bing speaking the lyrics line by line. He rehearsed the song with his choir members for several weeks and when he felt they were ready, he invited Bing back to hear the result.

Bing, a registered nurse, has been living with her husband Richard in Missouri since 1988 after they got married in the Philippines.

Correct dance steps

She grew up knowing the folk song by heart so she also helped in teaching the Madraliers the correct dance steps.

Sanders recalled: “She showed us a lot about the song as far as interpretation goes, with the original dance moves that she learned when she was a little girl singing the song.”

Bing recalled dancing the song as a student in the Philippines.

“Just the mention of the song brought back many pleasant memories of childhood and school days,” Bing said. “I grew up with it. It was also part of our music class.”

Bing focused on teaching the American choir members the Filipino way to pronounce the “p” and “t” sounds. The bigger challenge, however, was how to make the American students sway as gracefully as Filipinos would dance normally and effortlessly.

Hard work

Her hard work paid off: “I listened to them sing during practice and also during one of the performances. They did sound like Filipino singers.”

Those who saw the live performance enjoyed the song, too. Many of those who watched last year’s concert were musicians themselves, but Lanier said they “were very enthusiastic and they enjoyed the actions and the humor in the song.”

Lanier is particularly interested in exploring music from other cultures. He usually includes a song or two from other countries in his choir’s yearly repertoire.

He said: “I believe that through the study of music we can gain insight into the heart and soul of people from other countries.”

So what did “Paru-parong Bukid” tell him about the Filipino culture?

“I think the Philippine people have a wonderful sense of humor,” Lanier said. “They are not afraid to laugh at themselves. They can write beautiful music and appreciate life.”

Pandanggo Rinconada
Philippine folk dance from Nabua



Obviously the dance was an offshoot of the Spanish fandango that was introduced to the natives' repertoire of festival dances. The Pandanggo Rinconada derived its name from the sub-region of the Bicolandia where a distinct Bikol dialect is spoken. That subregion comprising the Camarines provinces is called Distrito de Rinconada. the other sub-regions of Bikol are Bikol Estandarte (Naga district), Bikol Albayano, Bikol Catanduanes, Bikol Masbatenyo and the Bikol Sorsogon also called Bisakol due to the heavy Bisayan influence in their language particularly Waray. In fact, some linguists classify the dialect spoken in Gubat, Sorsogan as Waray.

The Pandanggo Rinconada is a staple among the Christmas veladas (evening programs or shows) in Nabua, Camarines Sur.

KUNDIMAN DE 1850: Jocelynang Baliwag -Pedro Concepcion (Very Rare Vinyl Copy)

Indeed, 'tis haunting and melifluous ... beautiful instrumental, heck it can also make for great lounge music.

A favorite among the Tagalog (Bulacan) revolutionaries of 1896, its printed score was found among the papers of Juan Molina, leader of Orquesta Molina. The score bore an inscription: Musica de Legitimo Kundiman Procedente del Campo Insurrecto (Music of the Legitimate Kundiman that Proceeds from the Insurgent's Camp).

Cast in the slow triple time of the traditional Tagalog kundiman, the song has two parts. The melody of the song has been praised for its haunting but melifluous quality.

The first letters of the first words of the six-stanza lyrics spell out the name "Pepita" which refers to Pepita (nickname of Jocelyna) Tiongson, a beautiful Tagalog woman from Baliuag, Bulacan, to whom the song is dedicated. The songs melody is hauntingly sad, revealing an underlying pensiveness, a certain nostalgic vein.

JOCELYNANG BALIWAG
1896, Baliwag, Bulacan
Lyricist and Composer Unknown
Music from "Kundiman de 1850"


P- Pinopoong sinta, niring calolowa
Nacacawangis mo'y mabangong sampaga
Dalisay sa linis, dakila sa ganda
Matimyas na bucal ng madlang ligaya


E- Edeng maligayang kinaloclocan
Ng galak at tuwang catamis-tamisan
Hada cang maningning na ang matunghaya'y
Masamyong bulaclac agad sumisical


P- Pinananaligan niring aking dibdib
Na sa paglalayag sa dagat ng sakit
'Di mo babayaang malunod sa hapis
Sa pagcabagabag co'y icaw ang sasagip


I- Icaw na nga ang lunas sa aking dalita
Tanging magliligtas sa niluha-luha
Bunying binibining sinucuang cusa
Niring catawohang nangayupapa


T- Tanggapin ang aking wagas na pag-ibig
Marubdob na ningas na taglay sa dibdib
Sa buhay na ito'y walang nilalangit
Cung hindi ikaw lamang, ilaw niring isip


A- At sa cawacasa'y ang kapamanhikan
Tumbasan mo yaring pagsintang dalisay
Alalahanin mong cung 'di cahabagan
Iyong lalasunin ang aba cong buhay.

Kundiman 1800 - Traditional (arranged by Jose Valdez)

The piece is also Jocelynang Baliuag. A rendition of a classic done in modern contemporary times. I wish I could play the guitar like that. Excellent work by Pasigenyo.

From the vidmaker::
pasigenyo | November 13, 2009
**** COPYRIGHT MATERIAL FROM THE PHILIPPINE GUITAR **** **** NO FREE SHEET MUSIC / TABS ****
Another requested piece by lagrima111552. This is a rush job and I wish I could have done a better job with the baseline. The piece is very typical of the olden kundiman melodies but is still hauntingly beautiful.

I've taken a fancy to string instrumentals recently. Even at times more relaxing than those with vocals ... anyways, I see that the Spirit of the Habanera is very much alive in this excellent one...

Kundiman Art Song: Hatinggabi (Very Rare Copy)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FIRu_9PpCN4



philclassic | August 12, 2010

Hatinggabi is one of the most memorable of Filipino kundiman, penned by Prof. Antonio Molina. Audio from a vintage 10 inch vinyl phonograph record ("Kundiman, Love Songs of the Philippines, The Villar Symphonette under the direction of Leopoldo Silos." Villar Records. Undated).

===========


Antonio Molina
1894-1980


Antonio J. Molina was a National Artist of the Philippines. A musical great, he was considered the peer of two other great Filipino musicians Nicanor Abelardo and Francisco Santiago. His talent was prodigious: he was the first violincellist of pre-war times, a composer, conductor, pedagogue, and music administrator.

Molina was born into a musical family Quiapo, Manila on 26 December 1894. His father Juan Molina was an influential government official who also founded the Molina Orchestra. His first formal music lessons was violin and solfeggio under Celestino de Vera, then a member of his father's orchestra.

He attended the Escuela Catolica de Nuestra Padre Jesus Nazareno in Quiapo. He continued high school and college at San Juan De Letran where he obtained abachelor of arts degree in 1909.

Complying with his father's wishes he pursued a Bachelor of Laws initially at the UST. He transferred in his second year of law studies to the Escuela de Derecho de Manila, where he finished his studies. He attained a teacher's diploma in violincello at the UP Conservatory of Music in 1923.

His first composition was "Matinal" in 1912 and it is preserved in an unpublished volume "Miniaturas", Volume I. He did a professional work, as concert soloist, composer, and conductor in Hanoi, French Indochina (now North Vietnam). Back in the Philippines, he was appointed to teach harmony, composition, music history, and violincello at the UP Conservatory of Music]]. He was also the first Filipino composer who was invited to perform his works to Malacañang. From being a consultant in music education at the Bureau of Public Schools, he also became the dean of the Centro Escolar Conservatory of Music. He also founded the first chamber music group, the CEU String Quartet which was professionally organized and financed by its music school.

As a conductor, he lead the first performance in the Philippines of Bach's Christmas Oratorio presented by the combined Knox and Central Church Choirs (1947), as well as the first performance Mozart's opera Don Giovanni, presented by the Manila Little Theater Group at the FEU Auditorium (1950). He is also remembered as the conductor of the first televised choral concert, featuring the Centro Escolar University Conservatory Chorus, over then DZAQ-TV Channel 3 (1953).

As a composer Molina was credited with over 500 compositions, including: o Hatinggabi, among earliest violin selections o Malikmata, piano o Ana Maria, zarzuela o Misa Antoniana Grand Festival Mass o Ang Batingaw, Kundiman- Kundangan; (chamber music) o Kung sa Iyong Gunita, Pandangguhan; (vocal music) o Amihan, Awit ni Maria Clara o Larawan Nitong Pilipinas, among others.

A true pioneer, he was one of the first composers to incorporate pentatonic scales and ethnic instruments such as the kulintang, and gabbang in his symphonies.

Molina influenced many prominent Filipino musicians including Lucresia Kasilag and Felipe de Leon.

He died on 29 January 1980 at age 86 and was honored with a state funeral befitting a Philippine National Artist.

The video clip below also features the little Tita Duran singing "Maawa sa Isang Pulubing Bata."

Just saw this next vid today ... only for aficionados of course .... We have seen many photos and videos of Manila and the Philippines from afar, its buildings and parks in the old days ...

Well, if anyone wants to catch a glimpse of Philippine society up close in the late '30s and how they socialized and interacted in parties and soirees, one has to begin in Frame 07:45 ... it is easy to see that their society back then was culturally sophisticated and well groomed.

tunay(1939) 1/7 ... Pls Fast Forward to Frame 07:45 for a nice rendition of Buhat

fascinating Visayan lullaby.

**** COPYRIGHT MATERIAL FROM THE PHILIPPINE GUITAR **** **** NO FREE SHEET MUSIC / TABS ****
I recently counted how many pieces I've played so far in the Philippine Guitar book. With this latest addition, the count stands at 35. I thought I was almost through with the book until I realized there are still 35 more pieces to go!!!!. So I just hit my midpoint milestone and it only took me 3 years to get here. The song from which this piece is based, as I understand from the discussions out there, is an Ilonggo (Visayan) lullaby. I think it's appropriate to post the lyrics here.


Ili, ili, tulog anay
wala diri imo Nanay
kadto tienda, bakal papay
ili, ili, tulog anay

Mata ka na,
tabangan mo
ikarga ang nakompra ko
kay bug-at man singputos ko
tabangan mo ako anay

Ili, ili, tulog anay
wala diri imo Nanay
kadto tienda, bakal papay
ili, ili, tulog anay


Translation:

Hush, hush, sleep little one
your mother is not here,
she went to buy some bread
hush, hush, sleep little one.

You are awake,
come and help
carry the things I bought
because it is heavy
help me little one

Hush, hush, sleep little one
your mother is not here,
she went to buy some bread
hush, hush, sleep little one.

Ti ayat ti maysa nga ubing,
Nasamsam-it ngem hasmin
Kasla sabong nga apag-ukrad
Iti bulan ti Abril

Ti ayat ti maysa a lakay,
Aglalo no agkabaw,
Napait, napait, napait a makasubkar.

Anansa a tao lelong,
Agsapulka tay balo
A kapadpad ta ubanmo
Ken dayta tuppolmo

Anansa a tao lelong,

GAANO KO IKAW KAMAHAL

Or translated into English would almost seem like a Shakespearean "How Much Do I Love Thee"

The amazing thing is that Katrina is playing the piece in an L.A. mall.

Jonathan Badon’s version. Actually from what I gather, the song’s lyrics were written by Levi Celerio.

A Filipino immortal love song composed by E. Cuenco

Levi Celerio lyrics:

Ikaw lamang ang aking iibigin magpakailanman
Ang pag-ibig ko sa iyo ay tunay
Nais ko sanang patunayan
Huwag ka nang mag-alinlangan
Ang pag-ibig ko'y hindi kukupas
Tulad din ng umagang may pag-asang sumisikat

Ang ating buhay maikli aking Hirang
Kung kaya kailangan ang pagsuyong wagas kailanman
Ang sumpa ko sa iyo ay asahan
Ikaw lamang ang aking iibigin magpakailanman

Ang pag-ibig ko'y hindi kukupas
Tulad din ng umagang may pag-asang sumisikat
Ang ating buhay maikli aking Hirang
Kung kaya kailangan
Ang pagsuyong wagas kailanman
Ang sumpa ko sa Iyo'y asahan
Ikaw lamang ang aking iibigin magpakailanman
Ang sumpa ko sa iyo'y asahan
Ikaw lamang ang aking iibigin magpakailanman

This is one of my all-time favorite Filipino classic love songs.

I've tried taking on a more chill-out approach to it to practice my guitar-playing, and also because I most definitely do *NOT* have the voice to sing it the way it was originally sung.

I'm not as cool as the real Filipino singers of way back when.
