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.
