Listen to music of yesteryears in operatic vocals, or through the plucking of guitar strings. Relax, de-stress, and reminisce as the sun sets and the day winds down. What a wonderful experience as CCP takes us back in time, decades ago, to a world of youth, romance and tranquility . Dress up, put on your barong and saya if you wish, the world is yours to re-create for at least 2 hours. Invite your friends or special someone to join you in this special moment. Share with the world what it was like in the Philippines during this period of harana or love songs. This moment will be yours. Occasional contemporary Filipino music will be played as well. So young and old will be a part of this special sunset experience which is open to the public.
