The Visayan Region is one of the most beautiful regions to visit in the Philippines. It is situated between the islands of Luzon and Mindanao. The wellknown provinces in this region include Iloilo, Cebu, Negros Occidental and Oriental, Samar, Leyte and Bohol.
It is expected of Filipinos to love music since the Philippines is known to be a country of highly calibrated musicians. Visayans in particular are no exception.
You might have enjoyed the vocal music of Luzon, but to fully understand the Philippine culture, you are encouraged to discover other types of vocal music from different places in this country as well.
Our music mirrors our culture and traditions. When it comes to vocal music, Visayas has a lot to offer. In this module, as you gain more knowledge on the vocal music of Visayas, you will also understand the connection between music and their way of living.
