Episode 4 – Behind a Man is a Woman, Behind Andres is Oryang

Highlights of Episode 4:

1. FOUR VOICES. Another marvel of editing and digital manipulation splicing together 4 voices interpreting Bonifacio’s immortal poem “Pag-ibig sa Tinubuan Lupa “. Behold, how Mars Cavestany delivers and Nilda Carpo emotes whilst Miguel Castro and Ynang Laya sing majestically.

2. LIHAM NI LAKAMBINI . Nilda Carpo’s blood-curdling dramatic reading of Excerpts from Gregoria “Oryang” de Jesus’ famous letter-confessional to trusted friend and ally Emilio Jacinto about her own torture and sufferings to locate the body of her murdered husband.

3. TWO SONGS. Rizal being the forerunner of Bonifacio wrote well-loved poems including a hardly known kundiman (“ALIN MANG LAHI” sung here by Rachel Zarate) that inspired Bonifacio’s very own creative outpourings including the most popular “Pag-ibig sa Tinubuang Lupa” recast here in yet another abridged version by Pete Lacaba as interpreted by Loy Tagudin.

4. THE TRIAL OF BONIFACIO. This is the shorter, integral version, divided into four parts. ‘Covering Letter’ of Noriel, ‘Statement’ of Bonifacio, ‘Statement’ of Gregoria de Jesus and ‘Commutation of Sentence’ by Aguinaldo. A reconstruction and retelling of the most famous trial in Philippine history starring in the order of appearance Mars Cavestany as Aguinaldo/Narrator/ and Inquisitor, Ruben Amores as Mariano Noriel, Miguel Castro as Andres Bonifacio, Mon Carpo as Inquisitor, and Kate Andres as Gregoria “Oryang” de Jesus.

5. PARTING SHOT. Mon Carpo’s extro announcements with music by The Filipino Tenors (“Isang Kundiman”) and an acoustic rendition of Joey Ayala’s “Walang Hanggang Paalam”

    Have enjoyed listening to the Andres Bonifacio radio play. Especially the Filipino language written and spoken in its classic form. Congratulations to Marz Cavestany and all the actors/actress’s who made this possible.
