Philippine Opera Company To Lure Capiceņos With 'Harana' PDF Print E-mail
The free musical show will be staged through the Capiz provincial government and the Filipino Heritage Festival, Inc in celebration of the National Heritage Month this May.

"I invite everyone to watch the hour-long show package," said Provincial Tourism Officer Alphonsus Tesoro.

Harana aims to showcase the evolution of Philippine music through songs and movements. It features the country's highly celebrated singers Karla Gutierrez, Florence Aguilar, Arlynne Lupas-Tecson, Jennifer Villegas, Sherwin Sozon, Miguel Castro and Nazer Salcedo.

Tesoro noted that harana refers to the traditional form of courtship where a man lures a woman's affection by singing underneath her window.

In the 1920's, the harana and kundiman are a mainstream musical style with many popular performers including Diomedes Maturan and Ruben Tagalog performing it.

The month of May of every year is declared as National Heritage Month by virtue of President Gloria Macapagal - Arroyo's Presidential Proclamation No. 439 issued in August 2003 in "recognition of the need to create among the people a consciousness, respect and pride for the legacies of Filipino cultural history and love of country."
