Philippine Folk Music

The traditional music of the Philippines, like the folk music of our countries, reflects the life of common, mostly rural Filipinos. Like its counterparts in Asia, a lot of traditional songs from the Philippines have a strong connection with nature. However, much of it employs the diatonic scale rather than the more "Asian" pentatonic scale.

    Thy remembrance, and repentance, and deep musings are not free
    From the music of two voices and the light of one sweet smile.
    Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792–1822)

    An’ when the earth’s as cauld’s the mune
    An’ a’ its folk are lang syne deid,
    On coontless stars the Babe maun cry
    An’ the Crucified maun bleed.
    Hugh MacDiarmid (1892–1978)
