SHOWCASED “SOWARA” DURING THE
BOOK LAUNCHING OF DEPARTMENT OF
FILIPINO AND OTHER LANGUAGE AND
GANTALA PRESS

The College of Social Sciences and Humanities (CSSH), one of the pioneering colleges of the University invited the group to perform during the Book Launching of Department of Filipino and other Lan­guages and Gantala Press for the books entitled “Danaw” and “Laoanen” at the CSSH Lobby on November 14, 2017.

The Ensemble’s repertoire was enti­tled “Sowara” (the voice), an improvisa­tional performance of traditional songs, Meranaw traditional dances featuring the ensemble’s original song composition “Bulong ng Puso,” and a snippet drama depicting the vital role of the women during the Marawi siege. The highlight of the repertoire was the singing of another original song composition of the Ensem­ble entitled “Tayong Lahat ay Magkaisa” where it addressed the role of the Tri-Peo­ple of Mindanao (Lumads, Christians and the Moro) in rebuilding Marawi City. The audiences were moved as they have sung the song with spirit of unity amidst the crisis of the war.

The new published literature becomes an inspiration of people’s ups and down. Aristotle’s said “Tragedy, then, is an imi­tation of an action through pity and fear affecting the proper catharsis of these emotions”. Further, literature is the foun­tain and source of artist’s creation maxi­mizing the culture and arts.
