ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Overall, this album indicates a high level of musical artistry that is distinctively Filipino. The approach to the performance of sentiment is not found elsewhere, as recorded sentimentalsongs from other cultures would have different shades. (Think of Afro-American blues, Japanese enka, e.g. Each one would have its own ethos.) For this reason, the album is a raremusical treat. Aside from being alternative to the formulaic music churned out week by week by the dominating Anglo-American music culture industry, this album is driven by a deep belief that Filipinos have unique musical expressions. I believe the album succeeds quite wellin this endeavor. It represents cultural constructs of Filipino emotion from the perspective that is felicitous and strategically essential. -- From Review by Jose S. Buenconsejo.
