entry arrow11:49 PM | The Story and the Sounds of Nicky Dumapit for Paghimamat 2016



Earlier today, consummate storyteller Nicky Dumapit rounds up the Paghimamat -- Cebuano for "to come together" -- an event which traditionally opens the annual Sandurot Festival, a celebration of the Dumaguete fiesta, at the Rizal Boulevard. Dumapit, easily Dumaguete's own version of Garrison Keillor, gives an extemporaneous oral tale of Dumaguete life in "tagning nga Cebuano," using many indigenous sound instruments he has created from found objects in nature. I've decided he is going to be the narrator for the musical about Dumaguete I am currently writing. [Video by Hersley-Ven Casero.]
