Philippine Folk Dances 4
The Philippines is a treasureland of folk dances. These dances which must have been basically Malay, as our history reveals, have remained unchanged for over three centuries...and still bear the same features that characterized them prior to the end of the Spanish occupation. A cursory glimpse into these native rhythmic movements or folk dances, therefore, will show that most of them have the indelible mark of Spanish dances, and in some instances even of France and China. This is the fourth album of a series treasured collection of Philippine Folk Dance, as culled from various eras and presented with the dynamic sound of the Rondalla under the baton of Juan Silos Jr.
