Himig Pangkat Kawayan - Philippine Normal University (PNU) - Pobreng Alindahaw - Bamboo Musical

Philippine Normal University Rondalla, Ethnic & Angklung Ensemble / Himig Pangkat Kawayan

Pobreng Alindahaw - This visayan balitaw is performed on Angklung, bumbong and Marimba accompanied by Rondalla and percussion.

The PNU Rondalla usually performs in the university programs and other programs across the country, in National and International academic gatherings where the Philippine cultural touch is needed.

"Pobreng Alindahaw" is a Filipino folk-song, originating in the Visayan ethnic group. It is sometimes sung during special occasions such as birthday parties. It was also featured in the title of a 1970s movie. The word 'Pobreng' means 'poor', and 'alindahaw' actually means rain, when it should be 'alindanaw', a dragonfly, an error that went unnoticed by most if not all people. The lyrics chronicle the dragonfly flying amongst trees and flowers.
