Jocelynang Baliuag was the most popular kundiman in the 1890’s among Tagalog revolutionaries fighting Spanish colonial rule. It was known as the Kundiman of the Revolution.
This is a song from the sarswela Dalagang Bukid (1919) made famous by National Artist Atang de la Rama. Music by Leon Ignacio. Lyrics by Hermogenes Ilagan.
|May isang dalagang nagsalok ng tubig|
Kinis ng ganda nya’y hubog sa nilatik
Ano at pagkakaibig ng lumapit
ang isang binatang makisig
Wika ng dalaga’y, “Wag kang magalaw”
Ang kinasapitan pagdating ng bahay
(English translation to the lyrics will be added soon.)
