Nostalgia: My song, Marinduque Akin Ka, Marinduque Gising Na!



In 1992, this blogger composed the song, "Marinduque Akin Ka" as the theme song of "Mara-Unduk", a dance-drama also written by himself on the island's tales and folk-history premiered by Teatro Balangaw in Boac same year.

Found on YouTube this a capella version of the song rendered by the IFI Vocal Ensemble (2010) of Gasan, with choral arrangement by Norma Soldevilla of Marinduque Midwest College. 

The second song composed and arranged by Mark del Monte Reginio promotes travel to Marinduque.

"Marinduque Akin Ka"
Titik at Musika: Eli J. Obligacion

Isang paraiso sa gitna ng dagat
Ay muling nabuhay
Sa aking pangarap ngayon
Kahapo'y di mawaglit sa aking isip
Ngayo'y buhay ka't di na panaginip.

Marinduque akin ka
Puso mo'y puso ko
Awit mo'y awit ko di ba
At ngayo'y magkayakap
ang ating damdami'y iisa.

Isang paraiso'ng ilaw sa karimlan
Batis ng pag-asa
Bayan ma'y sadlak sa dusa
Kahapon mo'y may pait, luha at sakit
Ngayo'y nagising diwang nagupiling.

Marinduque gising na
Puso mo'y puso ko
Awit mo'y awit ko di ba/di baga
At ngayo'y magkayakap
Ang ating damdami'y iisa.

(Repeat Koro)
Ang ating damdami'y iisa

Marinduque akin ka.


Mara-Unduk
