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

9. Sakpaya

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.

Rey Valera

Rey Valera and His Songs

Reynaldo Valera Guardiano (better known as Rey Valera) was born on in Meycauayan, Bulacan, Philippines. He is a singer, songwriter, music director and film scorer from the Philippines. He wrote and produced songs that were recorded by various singers, most notably Sharon Cuneta.

Rey Valera started his recording career in 1977 after becoming a band member from a group called Electric Hair Band for seven years. He waxed his first single as a solo singer - songwriter with the song Ako si Superman, which he created supposedly for Rico Puno. His former boss at Vicor Records gave him the opportunity to sing his song and at the same time hired him as one of Vicor’s in-house producers. One of his initial projects was to make a song for a twelve-year-old mayor’s daughter. The song happens to be Mr. DJ, followed by Kahit Maputi na ang Buhok Ko. It made remarkable sales on the chart. Rey made songs for other artists such as Rico Puno's Sorry Na, Pwede Ba, Daigdig Ng Ala-ala; Geraldine’s Pangako; Pol Enriquez’ Ayoko na Sa ‘Yo and many more.

While he made songs for his peers, he made albums for himself such as Naaalala Ka, Rey Valera Vol. 2, Walang Kapalit, Hello, The Rey Valera Christmas Album, Gabay Mo Ako, Rey Valera’s Greatest Hits Vol. 1,Rey Valera’s Greatest Hits Vol. 2, Pirapirasong Ala-ala, Sa Kabila Ng Lahat, Kung Sakaling Iibig Muli, FM Ka, AM Ako, Home Sweet Home, Ang Mahalaga, etc. Most of these albums made golds and platinums.

He also worked as music director for movies, and his songs made marks also as theme songs and movie titles. These includes several Sharon Cuneta movies such as Maging Sino Ka Man, Pangako sa 'Yo, Kahit Wala Ka Na', Tayong Dalawa; Vilma Santos’ Sinasamba Kita, Romansa, Hiwalay; Robin Padilla’s Carnap King, Barumbado, and Baby Ama; Romnick Sarmenta’s Pasong Tirad, The Gregorio del Pilar Story.

Rey’s songs are considered classics and a part of the Filipino culture. Sharon paid tribute to his favorite composer when she recorded Sharon Sings Valera. Sharon’s biggest blockbuster movies were lifted from popular songs of Rey, thus mega singing Valera is an always-tested winning chemistry. Valera ‘s songs are also favorite titles and theme songs of soap operas like “Ula, Batang Gubat”(Malayo Pa Ang Umaga), “Te Amo Maging Sino Ka Man”, “Sa Sandaling Kailangan Mo Ako”, and the two year running soap series, “Pangako Sa ‘Yo”, from ABS-CBN.

In 2004, Rey reunited with his contemporaries Rico J. Puno, Marco Sison and Basil Valdez in a series of concerts highlighting the music of their own time. They also launched a VCD recording of their concert.

His songs:

1. Maging Sino Ka Man (with chords)

2. Ako si Superman (with chords)

3. Kung Tayo'y Magkakalayo
4. Pangako Saiyo

5. Malayo Pa ang Umaga (with chords)
