An album of relatively traditional works from the Philippines coming from the Fiesta Filipina troupe of Toronto (of all places). Essentially, the instrumentation on almost all of the tracks is the "rondalla," a collection of stringed instruments - the banduria (a small mandolin), guitars, and bass. While not completely traditional (this is Spanish-influenced music), it is rather nice, and is traditional in a sense. The nice part of the album is the inclusion of the kulintang and its related ensemble. Despite notable absences from the musical traditions (musikong bumbong, for example), an enjoyable album for introduction into the music of the Philippines. Tracklist: 2:36 01. Fiesta Filipina - Malong-taghing baila 2:23 02. Fiesta Filipina - Si pilemon 4:03 03. Fiesta Filipina - Kaykayapo 6:26 04.

Music of the Philippines.
From the Album Fiesta Filipina: Music of the Philippines. Exclusive Prime pricing.
Music of the Philippines (Filipino: Musika ng Pilipinas; Spanish: Música de Filipinas) include musical performance arts in the Philippines or by Filipinos composed in various genres and styles. The compositions are often a mixture of different Asian, Spanish, Latin American, American, and indigenous influences. Notable folk song composers include the National Artist for Music Lucio San Pedro, who composed the famous "Sa Ugoy ng Duyan" that recalls about the loving touch of mother to her child.
The traditional music of the Philippines, like the folk music of other countries, reflects the life of common, mostly rural Filipinos. Like its counterparts in Asia, a lot of traditional songs from the Philippines have a strong connection with nature. However, much of it employs the diatonic scale rather than the "more Asian" pentatonic scale, with the exception of indigenous people ritual music.
