Levi Celerio

Levi Celerio-Composer, Lyricist, National Artist

I remember Levi Celerio making train noises from his violin. Usually he caps his guest performance by playing a tune using a simple leaf which landed him in the Guinness Book of World Records as the only man who could play music with a leaf.

I did not know then that he was a composer and lyricist of 4,000 songs. Some of his love songs were use for movie titles or movie theme songs.

Among his songs are:
Saan Ka Man Naroroon?, Kahit Konting Pagtingin, Kapag Puso'y Sinugatan, and Ikaw, Dahil Sa Isang Bulaklak, Bagong Pagsilang, and Sapagkat Kami'y Tao Lamang, while his folk songs include Tunay na Tunay, Itik-Itik, Waray-Waray, Pitong Gatang, Ako ay May Singsing, Alibangbang, Galawgaw, Caprichosa, Dungawin Mo Hirang, Umaga na Neneng, Ikaw Kasi, and Basta't Mahal Kita. Celerio also wrote nationalistic songs such as Ang Bagong Lipunan, Lupang Pangarap, and Tinig ng Bayan.

He was born on April 30, 1910 in Tondo, Manila. He died at the Delgado Clinic in Quezon City on April 2, 2002 at the age of 91, just two days after the death of a fellow National Artist, Lucio San Pedro (who wrote the music for Sa Ugoy ng Duyan).

On October 9, 1997, pursuant to Proclamation No. 1114, President Fidel V. Ramos proclaimed him a National Artist for Music and Literature. His citation read that his music "was a perfect embodiment of the heartfelt sentiments and valued traditions of the Filipino.

His compositions:

1. O Maliwanag na Buwan

2. Alembong

3. Sa Ugoy ng Duyan

4. Bakya mo Neneng

5. Gaano Kita kamahal

6. Ang Pipit
7. Tinikling

8. Ang Tapis Mo Inday

Sharon Gamboa Cuneta Pangilinan (born January 6, 1966) is the most popular Filipina actress, TV host, singer, and endorser. She is also known as The Mega Star of Philippine Showbiz having been a grandslam awardee,a box office queen hall of famer and a recipient of several lifetime achievement awards at a relatively young age.

Her mother hails from Sta. Ana, Pampanga while her father was the mayor of Pasay City for decades.

She first appeared on Philippine pop charts in 1978 as a 12 year old, singing the tune "Mr. D.J." The tune became wildly popular and earned her the title of "D.J.'s Pet" (which was also the name of her first album). Other hit albums followed, and Cuneta was asked to sing many movie soundtracks of the time - becoming the first "movie soundtrack star" in the country.

She was given films from Viva Films. At age 15, she starred in her first feature film, 1981 Dear Heart paired with fellow teeny-bopper Gabby Concepcion. After Dear Heart's success, she appeared in more than 50 feature films, and earned the title of "Box Office Queen" in the country from 1985 through 1993.

Her musical-variety show, T.S.C.S. "The Sharon Cuneta Show" was one of the longest running television shows in Philippine Showbiz from 1986 through 1997.

Her love-team pairing in Dear Heart with Regal Films heartthrob, Gabby Concepcion made the team the most popular love team in Philippine Movies during the 1980's. They later married (at age 19) in a civil ceremony then a Church wedding on September 23, 1984 with former President Ferdinand Marcos as Principal Sponsor (Ninong); however, the marriage did not last. In April 1985, Sharon gave birth to a daughter, Maria Kristina Cassandra Concepcion or KC Concepcion.

Sharon is the first Filipina artist to sell out at the Los Angeles Shrine Auditorium first in 1988 and her latest June 11th, 2005 concert. She sang to SRO crowds. Her poster is enshrined in The Shrine's Hall of Fame next to stars Michael Jackson, Barbra Streisand and the Ballet Folklorico de Mexico. She created a traffic jam in the 90's and puzzled the former Mayor of Los Angeles Tom Bradley. After hearing of her success, the mayor attended the concert and awarded Sharon with an Honorary Key to the City of Los Angeles.

Since 1998, Cuneta has been married to Senator Francis "Kiko" Pangilinan. Cuneta gave birth to Simone Francesca Emmanuelle (Frankie) in November 2000 and Mariel Daniella Sophia (Miel) in September 2004.

Her late father, Pablo Cuneta, was mayor of Pasay City for four decades.

Rico J. Puno


uploaded by cathcath.com

Rico J was discovered by Vicor executives when he was 22 years old. His
first hit was "Love Won't Let Me Wait" released through the Sunshine Label,where he introduced a novelty he became famous for -- substituting Tagalog lyrics in singing foreign hits. He was named Most Promising Entertainer of the Year in the Aliw Awards after one year in the musi industry. He was chosen Entertainer of the Year by the same award-giving body in 1977.
His top three selling albums are "The Way We Were," "Rico J. Puno," and "Spirit of Christmas." Rico’s first solo performance at the CCP entitled "Rico in Concert" with the Manila Symphony Orchestra made him the leading pop singer in the Philippines; while his concerts in Araneta Coliseum and his American tour in 1978 broke records in audience attendance. At one point, he was even the highest paid performer in the Philippines. His trademark voice and new approach in the Pinoy pop sound was compared to such American classic stars as Elvis Presley and Sammy Davis yet it was uniquely his own. Puno is known as "The Total Performer" who appeals to all kinds of audiences.
His biggest hit singles include: "The Way We Were," "Kapalaran," "Magkasuyo Buong Gabi," "May Bukas Pa," "Macho Guapito," "Together, Forever."

He describes his children as: “My kids love to sing too. Robin, the older of the two is more like his mother. He’s shy and quiet. Ram is more like me -- talkative and very demonstrative.” As any typical proud papa would, he casually tells newsmen that Ram impersonates Jim Carey and a South Park cartoon character like a pro.

From Wikipedia:

Eraserheads was one of the most popular Pop/Rock bands in the Philippines, formed in the late 1980s and disbanded in 2002. Many music journalists and music enthusiasts regard the band as The Beatles of the Philippines because of their creative songwriting, catchy lyrics, and willingness to experiment with various styles of music. The Eraserheads was also regarded as the band that opened the commercial doors for other aspiring Filipino Rock bands. The band's debut album, Ultraelectromagneticpop, released in 1993 by BMG Records, was a commercial success, leading the way to the eventual breakthrough of many fellow artists like Parokya ni Edgar, Rivermaya, and Yano. It also brought band-based music into mass awareness.
Many of their fans fondly call them E-heads.

Philippine Folk Dance-Mountain-Igorot Dances

The mountainous Central Cordillera region of Northern Luzon includes six ethno-linguistic tribes known as the Ibaloy, Kankanay, Ifugao, Kalinga, Apayao, and Bontoc. They prefer to be called by their respective tribal names rather than the collective term Igorot, which was first used by the Spaniards and later by Christian lowlanders. These tribes were generally unfazed by Spanish colonization. This homogeneous group is recognized by their common socio-cultural traits. They hold common religious beliefs, generally nature-related, and make propitiatory offerings to anitos, or household gods. Among these people of the Cordillera, dance continues to be an expression of community life that animates the various rituals and ceremonies. It serves for self-edification of the performers and entertainment for the spectators. They dance to appease their ancestors and gods to cure ailments, to insure successful war-mating activities,or to ward off bad luck or natural calamities. They dance to congregate and socialize, for general welfare and recreation, and as an outlet for repressed feeling. They also dance to insure bountiful harvests, favorable weather, and to mark milestones in the cycle of life.

The Mountain-Igorot Dances are:

1. Apayao Courtship Dance

2. Bindian

3. Lumagen

4. Dinuyya

5. Ragragsakan

6. Tarektek

7. Pattong

8. Banga

Philippine Folk Dance -Tribal Dances

The hillside and interior of Mindanao in the southern part of the Philippines are inhabited by non-Christian Filipino tribes whose culture and animistic beliefs predate both Islam and Christianity. Dance for them is a basic part of life, still performed essentially "for the gods." As in most ancient cultures, unlike the Muslim tribes in their midst, their dances are nonetheless closely intertwined with ceremonials, rituals, sacrifice, and life.

The dances are characterized by vivid colors and rhythmic movements which reflect the influence of Arabian and Indo-Malaysian cultures.

Philippine Folk Dance- Rural and Barrio Dances

Perhaps the best known and closest to the Filipino heart are the dances from the rural Christian lowlands: a country blessed with so much beauty. To the Filipinos, these dances illustrate the fiesta spirit and demonstrate a love of life. They express a joy in work, a love for music, and pleasure in the simplicities of life. Typical attire in the Rural Suite include the colorful balintawak and patadyong skirts for the women, and camisa de chino and colored trousers for the men.

These dances are lively and incorporate a deep appreciation for music. Often they include fetes such as balancing jars of oil on the head and arms while dancing gracefully.
