Labing Dalawa

Twelve in Tagalog is LABING DALAWA. This offering of twelve songs culled from the Philippines’ major dialects – Tagalog, Bisaya, Ilocano, and Bicolano – creates a musical image and pays tribute to a rich Filipino ancestry, a people united in spirit.  Labing dalawa also means two lips. And so these songs are sung, passed on from one person, one generation to the next, bridging Old and New worlds, keeping memory intact and alive. Internationally acclaimed concert pianist Raul Sunico provides sensitive musical arrangements and impeccable piano accompaniment to enhance each song’s poignancy. Lyrics and translations are included.
