Boholano Talents in Independent (indie) Films
« on: June 15, 2009, 11:20:18 PM »
Musical virtuosity of Boholanos pop recently at the “breakaway world” of independent (indie) films.
Boholano multi-awarded musical scorer and composer Lutgardo Labad took his best swing in the world of indie films with the best of the best in Bohol singing groups to embellish at least two films: Raya Martin’s Independencia and Maryo delos Reyes’ Kamoteng Kahoy.

For Independencia and Kamoteng Kahoy, Labad used the musical talents of the sensational Loboc Children’s Choir, some of the group’s alumni members to interpret a wide variety of score for both films, independent sources said.

Independencia was an entry to the just concluded 2009 Cannes Film Festival in France for the non-competition category while Kamoteng Kahoy was one of the six SINE DIREK Film Series at the festival.

Independencia, set in the late 1890s, portrays a family forced to hide in the dense forests of Luzon to escape the advance of the new American colonizers stars Sid Lucero, Tetchie Agbayani, and Alessandra de Rossi.

The totality of the film is the first Filipino film that was accepted to the Un Certain Regard category of the prestigious Cannes Film Festival, while another Filipino film capped Best Director for Brillante Mendoza in the competition category for his movie Kinatay.

Using the theme melody of the Francisco Baltazar’s corido Florante at Laura, Labad utilized the angelic voices of the Loboc Children’s Choir (LCC).

LCC performers included alumni members Leah Cal, Liz Cal and Noel Kerr Caneda while the child singers consisted of Rica Baliton, Vea Navarro, Jenali Alexis Calipusan, Anna Marie Suganob, Jack Elmar Varquez and Paul Delfin Sumampong.

UP String Quartet, Pundaquit Virtuosi Cellist Pocholo Gutierrez and Kalinga artist Mauricio Patungao joined them.

Another Boholano, bay affinity, Butch de Juan, who married artist Vida Tirol arranged the music. 
On the other hand, multi-awarded Boholano film director Maryo J. de los Reyes will again display his directorial power with Kamoteng Kahoy, a movie loosely derived from the poisoning accident that afflicted 27 school children from Mabini, Bohol years back.

Focusing on the values of friendship and transformation with screenplay written by Ricky Lee, Kamoteng Kahoy stars best child actors Nash Aguas and Buboy Villar, together with Gloria Romero.
Musical arranger/keyboardist Romeo Mascarinas, banduria player Zosima Ocuram, Loboc guitarist Sam Varquez, Maribojoc soprano Geraldine Pancho, Antequera tenor Frex Tongco and Loboc tenor Johnrey Fuertes interpreted Labad’s score. 

The participation of Boholano musical performers and creators in the new significant medium of the indie film, heralds a new age of mainstreaming Boholano ingenuity in the creative media of the 21st century, Labad said in a statement. (PIA)
