Sinulog A Kamamatuan, Pangalay Ha Janggay, Sagayan, Kini Kini, Tinikling, Kasaya sa Singkil (Entrance, Main dance)
Instrumental (Background): Sinulog, Janggay, Sagayan and Kini. Played by Tessie with loops (electronic background obviously).
Background (loops) music for kulintang musicians of Filipino Performing Arts Group for practice: Kini Kini (Adani), Pangalay Ha Janggay (Bolero), Singkil (Drum/Agong), Sinulog (Salsa) and Tagonggo/Adongkodongkogakit (Sagayan). NOTE: Obviously these are just loops. I didn't play them.
I (Tessie) learned to play kulintang at the age of 54 (with no musical background) (I'm 70 now, 2019). I totally love this Southern Philippine music. I was never a prolific musician but I volunteered to teach these four beautiful Filipino Americans to play this instrument and appreciate our culture. (I often went to their houses so that their parents didn't have to drive to my place.) If nobody will teach them, this beautiful Philippine culture will fade away and be forgotten. Watch our young Kulintang musicians perform on YouTube.
I choreographed Southern Philippine dances (Sagayan, right photo; Kini Kini, below) that are accompanied by our young kulintang musicians. Watch our past performances: Southern Philippine dances. Photos courtesy of Maricar Castro.
Watch more videos of other dances (martial arts, Ati Atihan, hip hop, samba and a poem about Filipino farmworkers) on our YouTube channel: pinoy NM. Effective 2020, the FPAG was dissolved and is now part of the Filipino American Foundation of New Mexico (FAFNM) Cultural Group. Artistic Director: Maricar Castro.
