Filipino listeners will instantly recognize this humorous song. George Hernandez’ arrangement features several surprising moments that will engage singers with the song’s playful text. Recordings, pronunciation guides, and translations are readily available, giving performers all the tools they need to bring this piece to life. George’s arrangements of other Filipino folk songs are well worth perusing: his extensive knowledge of Filipino culture and music combine with his skill as a conductor and arranger to create arrangements in a variety of styles that are very well suited for high school, college, and community choirs.
