Kapampángan Folk Song
ATIN CU PUNG SINGSING
Perhaps the most popular Kapampángan song known all over the Philippines is the folk song Atin Cu Pung Singsing.
The song is a first-person monologue of someone who lost their heirloom bejeweled ring given by their mother after keeping it in a chest. The song ends with them offering their heart to anyone who finds it.
The song is classified as a basultu (a people’s song that often has an allegorical theme) that has a triple meter and its melody originates from 18th-century Spanish and Mexican folk songs that are very characteristic of the music of this era.
