NCCA Pays Tribute to Samaon Sulaiman with ‘Mamayog’

E-mail Print PDF

Samaon Sulaiman On the occasion of the first death anniversary of Manlilikha ng Bayan Samaon Sulaiman on May 21, 2012, the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA) will launch Mamayog: the music of Samaon Sulaiman, a set of audio recordings with a book containing more than 300 pages of transcriptions of these recordings and a monograph about the Maguindanaon kutyapi, published by the Gawad sa Manlilikha ng Bayan. This will be held at the NCCA’s Leandro V. Locsin Auditorium at 4pm.

Samaon Sulaiman was conferred the title, Manlilikha ng Bayan (National Living Treasure), in 1993 for keeping alive traditional Maguindanao kutyapi music against the onslaught of modernity, in accordance with Republic Act No. 7355. This law recognized master folk artists who dedicate their skills to nourish traditional crafts threatened by extinction.

The recordings and book pay homage to the ingenuity of the Filipino traditional artists and Samaon Sulaiman’s final legacy to the Filipino people.
