Manaygonay: The Harpist

Just a few minutes ago, in front of our house a manaygonay (caroller), dropped by and played his harp. So yes, here in the Philippines you hear carols all year round – not just Christmas carols. And this one is pretty special because he plays this musical instrument very soothing to the heart.

This was not the first time I saw this of course, but this was the time I had the courage to call out on someone like him and ask to play more. And yes, stay for some photo op. His name is Erwin. He can play at events, if you want him to play for you, I have his cellphone number. I guess he just plays in Cebu areas.

He made my 1st of May! His music echoed outside, I couldn't help but jump out of my seat and invite him over to play a few more.

And look at that, even my nephew appreciates his music!
