Palay, Bigas, Kanin 1 (Music CD)

Palay, Bigas, Kanin 1 is a musical-in-progress with the following
project phases:

• Creation – The initiating author (Nadera) prepares lyrical seeds and turned them over to Ayala, the musical director (MD).

• Composition – The MD either composed the songs fully or in part and distributed the lyrics and/or song seeds to other musician-performers for development. The idea was to get broad representation from cultural energies in different parts of the country.

• Arrangement – The compositions were then routed to different arrangers, some, but not all, of who were also the composers themselves.

• Recording – The arranged songs were performed for recording. Again, the performers may or may not be the composers.

Dasal sa Ghazal
Pasyong Mahal ng Maylupang Panginoon Namin
Oryza Sativa!
Hindi Lang Ang Ifugao
Bankakawan (Instrumental)
Sagot Na o Sirit Na?
Aking Paaralan ang Aking Palayan
Noon Po Sa Amin
Dalit kay Dalacdac
Magtanim ay di Biro
Kasal, Binyag, Libing
Ako Ay May Lupa
Halina At Hain Na
Ambahang Sambahan
Kahit Palay, Bigas, Kanin ay Kaunti
Eat All You Kan-on
May mito, may totoo
Ang Bansa ng Pambansa
