I’ve always loved the idea of creating music meant to be danced to onstage. So when I was approached in 2004 to produce some cheerful ethnic tunes for a childrens’ ballet recital, I did not hesitate. The entire creative brief was based on a simple concept: Filipino children’s games. Compose and produce tracks that children could dance to in a recital piece that would feature kids’ games.
The 10th Perry Sevidal Ballet Recital was held on June 3rd, 2004 at the Cultural Center Of the Philippines and 3 of these 5 tunes were used in fun dance numbers involving cans, slippers, jump ropes, and even karate. The entire 5 song suite is collected here as an EP.
The EP was released on my QED Records netlabel in 2005.
