WORLD: Asian, FOLK: Traditional Folk
This CD is a first of a series of Philippine Folk dance recordings, as arranged by some of the best known Filipino artists/arrangers and composers performed by the Rondalla under the baton of Juan Silos Jr.
We sincerely hope that these pieces will contribute our share in arousing the Filipinoâs pride in their rich and distinctive musical heritage, while providing others with another rare opportunity to gain a fuller perspective of the true Philippine soul and culture.
Villar Records feel the necessity for wider exploitation of tradition-laden Filipino folk songs. For social gatherings, in school, theaters and activities wherever and whenever a cultural portrait of the Filipino is desired, colorful Philippine Folk dances can always provide enchanting hours of listening pleasure.
