PINOY GROOVE EXPERIENCE:

Celeste Legaspi “Pag-Ibig Na Lubus-Lubos” (1976)

(PINOY GROOVE EXPERIENCE:Philippine Popular Music Revisited)

On the record sleeve of CELESTE, a collection of covers from English to Tagalog by singer and stage performer Celeste Legaspi, translator and Artistic Director of Teatro Pilipino of the Cultural Center of the Philippines Rolando S. Tinio states that “Translating foreign pop songs into Pilipino is not intended as an exercise in fadmongering or yellow music-making.  Rather, it is an attempt to fill up the Pilipino ear with insights into common experience, nuances of thought and feeling…The purpose of translation is not to stifle or replace original creation, but to open doors and windows for native genius by showing new possibilities and approaches for the Pilipino creator.”

Sure, but it also shows this Pilipino singer getting down on the Roberta Flack classic “I Feel Like Making Love” like you can’t believe.  The LP also features a lovely version of “Loving You” by Minnie Ripperton.  All in Tagalog and groovy as heck.

I played this song once in a conference full of college kids.  A couple of them walked up to me and said “I’ve never heard a Filipino song sound like that.  Wow, it’s cool.”   Paging Mr. Tinio!  Sounds like Pilipino ears in the States needs some insights too.

Love this version.  Celeste Legaspi’s voice is one of the strongest and purest in Philippine pop in the 70’s and 80’s.  Wish these great singers delved more into soul instead of the standard concert ballads that has become the norm.  Great stuff though and the production in the 70’s in the Philippines were on it.

NOONG UNANG PANAHON
Itinitik ni Bienvenido Lumbera, Pambansang Alagad ng Sining sa Panitikan (2006)
Nilikha ni Dero Pedero
Inawit ni Leah Navarro
Mula sa Tales of the Manuvu (1977)

Noong Unang Panahon
Ang langit at lupa’y
magkaratig halos
laganap ang tuwa
Kapag sa banga
ni butil ay wala
Ang gubat at ilog
may handang biyaya

Noong Unang Panahon
Ang sikat ng araw
ay nagpapalago
sa bawat halaman
Bakit kaya ngayon
Kay init ng darang
Ilog tinutuyo
parang tinitigang

Noong Unang Panahon
Ang patak ng ulan
pinasasariwa
Dahong naninilaw
ngayo’y nagngangalit
may hanging kasabay
may bahang kasunod
na nakamamatay

Noong Unang Panahon
Ang puso ng tao’y
marunong magmahal
hindi nanloloko
Sa hapis ng iba’y
laang makisalo
Layo’y pumayapa
at hindi manggulo

Pati na ang langit
na dati’y kay baba
ay nagpakalayo
sa ulilang lupa
Bathala gumising
Tuyuin ang luha
ng nananawagan
at nagpapaawa

Noong Unang Panahon
Ang langit at lupa’y
magkaratig halos
laganap ang tuwa
Bathala gumising
tuyuin ang luha
ng nananawagan
at nagpapaawa

Noong Unang Panahon
Noong Unang Panahon
Noong Unang Panahon
