MANILA, Philippines – Lam Ang: An Ethno-Epic Music is the third production of Tangling Pilipo (TP) this season, created by a mission to promote Filipino culture and heritage.
Baig Ni Lam-Ang (the life of Lam Ang), who influenced music, is one of the ancient myths of the Alcos Region, and yet most Filipinos do not know anything about it.
Featuring the book by Elijah Castro Dledok, TP’s Lam Ang wants to tell the story creatively and truthfully. The epic Ilocano warrior is about two questions in Lam Ang’s life: searching for his lost father and finding love. These are the quests that make Lam Ang like a hero.
Usually the musical is worth watching. Everything that the audience sees is so meaningful, which proves how much research it took. It must be authentic because such a product speaks of our cultural identity.
The music and lyrics of Jean Darlene Torres are beautiful, where indigenous slogans and instruments combine with modern genres. At the media launch, Torres mentioned that she wants the songs to attract the younger generation and, after watching, get caught in their heads and they succeed.
