Old Manila, 1898
The following two songs, Anak ng Dalita ( Son of the Oppressed) and Pakiusap( May I Talk to You) are in the top ten of my favorite old Filipino love songs. What is also beautiful and nostalgic in this video are the pictures of old Manila around 1898 to 1930 serving as the background. If you love Philippine history and old filipino classical music, this video is a must see for you.
