Rosas Pandan sung by Foreign choirs
Tigadong tigadong tigadong
Ayay usab si Dodong
Nagtan-aw kang Inday
Nagtabisay ang laway
I love that line from the song Rosas Pandan, A Cebuano folk song about a pretty mountain maid who loves to dance the balitaw.
I was surprised to see and hear foreign choirs performing with this song.
This song (actually a remake) became popular last year when a version came out which was supposedly made by Ali Sotto. I’m sure most of you has heard of this. If not, well, you can google around for it. Just type “Tigidong”.
By the way, the choir on the first video is the Himig Singers, A Davao based chorale group. They will be going to Indonesia this November to compete for the 1st Asian Choir Games.
