Tipanan (Rendezvous) is a convergence of different musical styles from the Philippine islands. From the sublime to the rhythmically charged, harana (serenade) to tribal dance, this collection showcases the diversity of Philippine music along with its most trusted instrument.
The influence of Spain, the assimilation of American pop, the staying power of the rural folk songs, and the exoticism of indigenous rhythms, yield a picturesque canvas of a culture like no other.
Florante Aguilar, classical guitar and octavina (track #11)
With special guest Michael Walsh, 2nd guitar on Nais Ko and Radyo Tipanan.
Call for Audition: I am looking for a San Francisco Bay Area-based male harana singer for an important performance opportunity this year. Must be able to travel. Qualifications include: - Seasoned performer - High level of musicality and musicianship - Native Tagalog speaker - non-operatic (if you're operatic but can sing in the harana style, that might work too) - Any age welcome
Plus: I am realistic enough not to require the following due to its rarity, but a huge HUGE plus if you have: - Expert knowledge of the harana repertoire including songs by Ruben Tagalog, Larry Miranda, Ric Manrique, Jr., etc. - Deep knowledge and experience of the harana custom - Can play harana guitar accompaniment or solo.
If you, or someone you know qualifies, please send me a private message here with a link to a video. PLEASE NOTE: This is a video-only audition. If you pass the video audition, I will meet with you in person. Thank you!
P.S. Yes, this is a paid performance plus future paid gigs. ... See MoreSee Less
