At the hour of bedtime, nothing enchants parents and children like a well-loved folk song. Carefully selected by musicology expert Dr. Felicidad A. Prudente, each song features regional customs and traditions that showcase the diversity of our islands. Sang in the language of the Kiangan Tuwali, Ed-Eddoy is a tribute to the abundance showered on the Ifugao people. Its lyrics speak of the overstocked bundles of rice stalks covered in soot because there’s more than enough to eat, or money rusting because it isn’t spent. Kora Dandan Albano illustrated these scenes imagining the young girl in our song as Bugan, a popular female mythical figure from the epic who hails from a wealthy social class called kadangyan.
