Old Carolers


Best friends Alfredo Panoy (left), 60, and Marcelo Son, 70, from Del Carmen, Iligan City, have been caroling together for years. What makes their style special is the use of leaves as the lead instrument. They travel to Lanao del Norte and Misamis Oriental for their Christmas caroling. Given the effort to deliver the music well, and smiling in admission, they say that sometimes they would only be given a peso. They were spotted here in Linamon in Lanao del Norte Friday afternoon (19 Dec 2014). MindaNews photo by Aubrey Rocin Llamas
