The Voice coach, Broadway royalty and national idol Lea Salonga released a new album called “BAHAGHARI”, a collection of beautiful and memorable traditional Filipino folk songs representing three cultural regions and many languages.
Hi, all! My new album Bahaghari is now available exclusively on my website, pre-release! Please visit https://t.co/2UqiVaqeV2! Woot!

Lea picked songs that appealed to her, both artistically and personally, with the help and guidance of music authority, maestro Ryan Cayabyab.
Lea’s mellifluous vocals, tonal clarity, and expressive interpretation make the album a must-listen especially for youngsters who are key to preserving and reviving interest in these songs and languages for future generations.
One standout track is her delicate version of ‘Ili Ili Tulog Anay’, an Ilonggo lullaby that her mother sang to her when she was young.
BAHAGHARI is available on iTunes and can be streamed on Spotify.
