Sing, Sing a Song Saturday

I started doing what I call Sing, Sing a Song Saturday.  I'm going to post one song on Saturdays that the boys or I like. 

The song may be part of a movie, a kid's video or just a song we like. I'll try and include why we like it and/or the history of the song/singer.

My Step-Grandma is from the Philippines. She's the only Grandma I knew on my Dad's side. She's really old now and lives in California. I grew up with her living right here in Omaha, Nebraska. Things I remember about her:

  • The cool candy she gave to us that was covered in rice paper. My older sister and I loved that we could eat the wrapper!
  • The egg rolls she made. They were good.
  • Listening to her talk on the phone in her native language Tagalog.  I was always amazed because it seemed like she talked so fast!
  • Their dances and parties. Once someone was trying to teach me to play music with my nose. You heard that right. You hum out of your nose, plug your nose and unplug your nose. You hum to get different notes, and pluck you nose like a guitar is plucked. It's so odd, but kind of fun when it's not allergy season. LOL
I looked for a band from the Philippines.

I ran into a band called Kadangyan. It starts off slow and then gets faster.

Here's a video where they talk about the insterments they use. 

Check out their website.
