Ay-ay Naliday: An Expression of Sorrow

Last week, I had the chance to watch the Celebration of the Elderly Week upon the invitation of Mr. Pablito Miguel. It was a big gathering of senior citizens of the province of Ilocos Norte. Each town had its representation. It was held at Currimao, Ilocos Norte. One competition being conducted in the event was the vocal solo. The winning entry was a male senior from the town of Banna who interpreted the song Ay-ay, Naliday. It was a song of grief of losing a love of your life.
