Kanlungan

This is totally random… or maybe not.

I just want to share a video of an old song entitled, “Kanlungan”, which I absolutely love composed by Rom Dongeto and performed by, in my opinion, one of the best singer/songwriters in the country – Noel Cabangon.

This video was from the coverage of the TulongPH benefit concert for Super Typhoon Yolanda victims.

I love Filipino folk music… perhaps also because I’m such a sucker for nostalgia which this song speaks so much of. The song which talks about reminiscing and going back home also takes on a deeper meaning now, given that it is being performed for countless Pinoys who are suffering and have lost everything because of the devastation brought by Yolanda.

Enjoy the video below…

Never fails to bring tears to my eyes for some strange reason. It seems to sing straight to my heart. Beautiful song.
