MALAYBALAY CITY (IPS) The Bukidnon Studies Center (BSC) of the university sponsored a modified indigenous music concert on March 15, 2019 at the University Auditorium.
The center held the concert to promote Indigenous Music and to make it readily understandable to the masses by combining and arranging it with mainstream music genre such as jazz, classical and pop.
The concert’s main composer and arranger, Mr. George Gorby Rubio, a faculty associate of the Bukidnon Studies Center, has dedicated the event to encourage musicians, especially the young ones, to further increase their knowledge of indigenous music heritage. Rubio said it was also intended to help indigenous music just as relevant as the other music genre.
Rubio performed with his sister lawyer Ophelia Pillar Rubio-Zamora. They were joined by IP students Mr. Dulius Antogon and Mr. Luciano Adolfo, both of the Manobo tribe and Mr. Gilbert Magna, an Umayamnon.
The concert featured famous traditional songs such as Dilay-un, a Lullaby, and Hi-ay Angga. The other songs were composed by Mrs. Emi Maniano Sario, a pastor’s wife and a Lumad from Brgy. Sumpong. She has composed a number of songs including “Agpanginsudsud Kay” and “Pukaw Kad”, which Rubio-Zamora performed during the concert.
The Binukid songs performed in the concert depicted many of the contemporary issues and concerns such as gender, labor and livelihood, and spirituality.
Hi-ay Angga portrays the struggles of women with impotencies. Agpanginsudsud Kay describes what women weavers have to go through just to make a living. Pukaw Kad exhorts men and women to be vigilant for Magbabaya’s return.
The concert was attended by local leaders, professionals, students and other residents of Malaybalay City. (Bukidnon Studies Center for BukSU OP Information and Publication Service)
