Ang Alibangbang/Pitu-Pitu (SA)
These two Hiligaynon folksongs from Panay Island in the Philippines, when translated literally do not make any sense but describe the scenery of the typical fields in rural areas. The first song talks about a lady, personified by a butterfly because of the way she dresses and how she moves.
The second song is a nonsensical combination of rhyming words in Hiligaynon. The piano accompaniment supports the voices with Hispanic rhythms; each voice part has a turn with the melody; geared towards developing part-singing skills of children's choirs, acquiring independence in their parts through ostinato and descant. It also pairs two folksongs into a marvellous mash-up style for developing choirs.
