HARANA

Harana, also known as Habanera Filipina, is a Philippine serenade which derives its rhythmic element from the Spanish Tango or Habanera. While the Spanish version has a lively, seductive tempo, the Filipino version is romantic, lyrical and slow. Examples of the Harana are "Walay Angay", "Ay Kalisud", "No Duaduaem Pay", "Silayan", "Alaala Kita", Bituing Marikit", "O ILaw". Felipe Padilla de Leon's "Sapagka't Mahal Kita" is a beautiful love song in the Harana form. Originally composed as a vocal/piano piece, it has been transcribed into different instrumental combinations including the rondalla.(Cynthia Guerrero de Leon)
