GINUGUNITA KITA

A LUCAS/LUCAS - MICLAT/MICLAT COLLABORATION 

Composer Jesse Lucas set to music a poem by Maningning Miclat - entitled “Ginugunita Kita,” and was welcomed by viewers when first aired on TV and was passed online by hundreds of netizens last May. 

Critics, music lovers and avid fans watched it, and seven other Lucas songs of Maningning poems, at the Aldaba Recital Hall of the UP Diliman Theater on May. Said songs, and more, will be featured at the Tanghalang Aurelio Tolentino of the Cultural Center of the Philippines on September 3, back to back with the 2015 Maningning Miclat Trilingual Poetry Awards featuring Kammerchor Manila. It is aptly entitled “Ginugunita Kita.” 

Lucas is a multi-awarded composer for film, television, theater and dance. Miclat was a trilingual poet, award-winning visual artist and art teacher. Directed by film and theater actor Roeder Camañag, the performance will feature soloist Banaue Miclat-Janssen and master cellist Renato Lucas, together with singer Al Gatmaitan and artist Delphine Buencamino, with live interactive visual art of Nasser Lubay.

"Sa gabing ito una kung nasilayan ng buong-buo si Banaue Miclat - Janssen sa entablado, ung hindi saglit lang, ika nga ng marami nasa iyo ang pagkakataon para ipakita ang iyong galing sa loob ng mahabang oras kaya dapat hindi mo ito sayangin. Masasaya ako sapagkat nabigyan niya ng magandang interpretasyon ang bawat gawa at sinamahan pa ng isang Cello na si Maestro Renato Luca at syempre si Jesse Lucas ay sarap sa taenga ng bawat melodiya na kanilang nilalabas mula sa kanilang mga instrumento, naisip ko nga sana araw-araw may ganun akong naririnig sa radio, hindi ba? Masarap pakinggan at hindi nakakasama, salamat sa magandang melodiya Sir Jesse Lucas" - AXL GUINTO

"Yung mga ganitong pagtatanghal ang dapat with regularity eh kanilang pinapanood at ine-experience para mabawa­san ang junk food at kalawang sa kanilang sistema" - ALWYN IGNACIO
