Malinak Lay Labi Lyrics

Dasol Salt Farm (Photo by Willie Lomibao)

Ag ta ka nalingoanan Angga'd kauyos na bilay...

Malinak la'y labi Oras la'y mareen
Mapalpalna'y dagem Katekep to'y linaew
Samit da'y kugip kon Binangonan kon tampol
Lapu'd say limgas mo Sikan sika'y amamayoen.

Lalo la bilay No sika la'y nanengneng
Napunas lan amin So ermen ya agbibiten
No nanunotan ko la'y samit da'y ugalim
Ag ta ka nalingoanan Angga'd kauyos na bilay...

(Uliten so II tan Gapo)

Tambayo Singers

Tambayo Singers group was organized in 1984 at the Pangasinan State University - Bayambang Campus in response to a requesat from the Ministry of Information for a cultural show in Pangasinan. All of the songs were lifted from "Pangasinan Folk Literature" a dissertation of its founder, Dr. Perla Samson Nelmida. In 1988, the group was invited to perform at seminars, workshop, and conferences sponsored by civic organizations, government agencies, and historica/cultural associations.It was formally organized at PSU San Carlos City Campus as student organization with expected annual activities. The Tambayo Cultural Group of San Carlos City was organized by five past presidents: Gilmer Bautista, Genaro Manolid, Larry Millanes, Jess Estabillo,and Nathaniel Valerio.

The word 'tambayo' is taken from theme song 'Rosing ya Tambayoy Ermen' which translated freely to a balm, a solace by performing artists of the group which is dedicated to the loving people of San Carlos City and the province of Pangasinan as part of the heritage of the province in the promotion of culture and arts, and the love of our native language, Pangasinan.

Itandoro so Pangasinan!

Noli at Fili Dekada Dos Mil in Pangasinan

If Jose Rizal had written his two novels today, what issues would he raise? In modern society, who would Ibarra and Maria Clara be? Who would be the equivalent of the villains Padre Salvi and Padre Damaso, and the characters of Elias, Pilosopong Tasio, Basilio, Isagani, and Padre Florentino? Would his second novel end the way it did when he wrote El Fili in 1891?

The Philippine Educational Theater Association (PETA) brought to Pangasinan a new interpretation to Rizal's classic works Noli Me Tangere and El Filibusterismo with Nicanor Tiongson's Noli at Fili Dekada 2000 (Dos Mil). 

Inspired by the national hero's powerful critique of the "social cancer" festering in the very heart of late 19th century Filipinas, Noli at Fili Dekada 2000 with humility and concern reflects on the "reign of greed" in contemporary Philippine society. It seeks to underscore the continuing relevance of Rizal's characters and the validity of his social analysis today. But it also highlights the differences in the conditions of the 19th century and those of our time.

 Noli at Fili Dekada 2000 (Dos Mil) is set in the small town of Maypajo in the province of San Lorenzo in Southern Tagalog. An idealistic but naïve Ibarra Marasigan, the newly-elected mayor, decides to put a final stop to the deforestation of the Sierra Madre. He finds loyal support for this cause in Fr. Ino, parish priest of Maypajo; Mr. Atanacio, the principal of Maypajo High School; Kapitan Badong, the present chief of all barangay chairmen in Maypajo, and, most of all, Clarissa Santos, his childhood sweetheart and now fianceé.

However, as Mayor Ibarra makes more vigorous moves against deforestation, he uncovers the whole web of corruption that implicates his future father-in-law and godfather Governor Santiago Santos, Provincial Commander Colonel Salvador (Salvi) Salvatierra, and Monsignor Damaso, bishop of the newly established diocese of San Lorenzo. Mayor Ibarra is removed from office by "people power," his fianceé is blackmailed into marrying Salvi, and his childhood friend Kumander Elias of the National Liberation Army (NLA) dies while covering Ibarra's escape from prison. Three years later, Ibarra has risen to the leadership of the NLA. Now feared as Kumander Simon, he leads personal, punitive attacks against the individuals who caused his downfall as mayor of Maypajo.

Under the direction of theater and movie stalwart Soxie Topacio, this contemporary interpretation of these much-studied novels will feature some of the country's seasoned stage artists as well as PETA's pool of talented young actors and guest artists: Lex Marcos, Bodjie Pascua, Bembol Roco, Robert Seña, Raffy Tejada, Ernie Cloma, Randy Villarama, Gilbert Onida, Upeng Galang-Fernandez, Marichu Belarmino, Jess Evardone, Julia Enriquez, Shé Maala, Ian Segarra, Norbs Portales, Jack Yabut, Neomi Tabanao-Gonzales, Eric dela Cruz, and Joseph Grantusa.

The play ran from October 20-26, 2010 at the Sison Auditorium, Lingayen, Pangasinan.

Noli Me Tangere and El Filibustismo rolled into one spectacular production! Taking off from Rizal's famous novels, Noli at Fili Dekada Dos Mil provides a contemporary twist to the two well-loved classics as it transports Rizal's characters into modern times. Now set in a small town of Maypajo in the Quezon province, Rizal's protagonist - Ibarra becomes a dashing Mayor who fights the logging operations in Sierra Madre and becomes a captive of his own love for the modern day Maria Clara - Clarissa Santos.

          SM City Rosales, Pangasinan –  June 15, 2010, 2 o'clock in the afternoon, the search for Ten Accomplished Youth Organizations (TAYO) on its eight year was launched at The Event Center.

            Commissioner Joyce Anne Samaniego of the National Youth Commission officially opened the nominations for the search. In attendance were Engr.

             SM Supermalls with its SM Cares committee, being partners of the said nationwide search, has hosted the said launching activities in various cities and provinces of the country's foremost award for youth organizations where SM is located.
(From L-R) Ms. Catherine Garcia - AMM of SM Rosales, Ms. Joyce Samaniego of NYC,

            The TAYO search was initiated by Sen. Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan, who noted that, while there are numerous awards given for individual accomplishment, there were very few that acknowledged the contribution and the efforts of groups and organizations. He believes recognition for collective promotes unity and teamwork – necessary components in the important task of nation building. He also stressed that today's Filipino youth are examples of nation-builders, and it is only fitting that their perseverance, vision, and dynamism are given due recognition.

            Together with the National Youth Commission, TAYO began in 2003 with the idea of recognizing the achievements of youth groups and the outstanding innovations brought about by their collective action in their schools and communities.
UL Dancers wowed the crowd!

            The award is given to ten outstanding Filipino youth clubs that have undertaken a recent project or program that has benefited a local community to which they belong. The search is open to youth organizations whose majority of members is aged 15 to 30 years. TAYO involves in-school, out-of-school, working youth, and young professionals. It is open to any barkada that believes it can make a difference in the lives of others!
PYAP groups perform during the launch

            TAYO awardees are selected through projects implemented by the youth groups in the areas of education, livelihood and entrepreneurship, community service, technology, health, media, arts and culture, and the environment.

            And as part of its share, SM Supermalls having its local branch here in Pangasinan, SM City Rosales is now accepting applications and nominations for the said search. Groups who may be interested may ask and submit their forms  at the SCMC Administration Office from 10 am to 9 pm, Mondays thru Sundays. Making it easier and more convenient to interested participants from the province and nearby communities. Deadline of submission of entries is on July 30, 2010.

2009 Digital Lokal Lino Brocka Grand Prize Winner to be Screened at Cine Adarna, U.P. Film Center

The U.P. Subol in cooperation with the Sine Caboloan and the Ulupan na Pansiansia’y Salitan Pangasinan (UPSP) [Association for the Preservation of the Pangasinan Language] will screen for the first time in Metro Manila the award-winning Anacbanua (The Child of the Sun), the first full-length digital feature film in the Pangasinan language with English subtitles, on February 24, 2010, 7 pm at the Cine Adarna, U.P. Film Center, U.P. Diliman in Quezon City.

Written, produced, directed, and edited by Pangasinan filmmaker Christopher Gozum, the experimental film won the Digital Lokal Lino Brocka Grand Prize as well as the Digital Lokal Best Director Award during the 11th Cinemanila International Film Festival in October 2009.

Using the Pangasinan poetry of Santiago Villafania, Erwin Fernandez and Melchor Orpilla and Pangasinan oraciones as well as the ancient Calatagan pot script as voice-over narration, Anacbanua is a story of an exiled Western-educated Umaanlong (poet) who, suffering from an unknown illness, decides to return to Pangasinan, the land of his birth. Upon his return, he encounters the Musia (muse) who would seek the cure to his illness. While in half-sleep, the uprooted poet would meet the Ogaw (child) who would guide him in his cosmic immersion testing him in the ways of the fermented fish sauce, butchered livestock, burned metal rods, molded clay and the baked bricks leading him to finally reclaim his primal connection to the water (danum), land (uma) and his people (katooan). Upon surviving the series of tests, the poet would return to the real world ready to offer himself towards the cultural renaissance of his own people; thus, he would become one with the Musia (muse).

Coinciding with the UP Diliman Arts and Culture Month, the screening will be preceded by the showing of another prize-winning Gozum short experimental film in the Pangasinan language, the Surreal Random MMS Texts para ed Ina, Agui, tan Kaamong ya Makakailiw ed Sika: Gurgurlis ed Banua (Surreal Random MMS Texts for a Mother, a Sister and a Wife Who Longs for You: Landscape with Figures), which won for the filmmaker the Ishmael Bernal Award for Young Cinema during the 10th Cinemanila International Film Festival in 2008.

Founded in 1975, the U.P. Subol is an organization of UP students from Pangasinan promoting Pangasinan culture in the university. Founded in 2007 by filmmaker Christopher Gozum, the Sine Caboloan is a film production company committed to producing independent digital feature films about the Pangasinan region and its people in the homeland and in the diaspora.  Established in 2000, the Ulupan na Pansiansia’y Salitan Pangasinan, the only literary organization promoting the Pangasinan language, aims to create a pool of creative writers in various genres: poetry, essay, creative fiction as well as creative non-fiction. The gathering of these three organizations presages the exciting revitalization and development of Pangasinan culture in the years to come.
