“Hindi ko maintindihan, pero nakaka-enjoy ‘yong music nila”
You heard them sing their hearts out for nearly nine years now. Their speakers are the loudest among the booths around Heroes’ Park. They sing the lyrics that you will never understand. They are the Haribol Yoga Club.
Had you enjoyed their music? Maybe not? It is now time to dismantle what their real intensions are.
Haribol Nitaigaur, Nitaigaur Haribol
With their loud music and beating drums, Bulacan haribol Yoga Club again entertains the populace of Bulacan State University on its ninth time of performing during the 109th celebration of the University’s Foundation Week.
Believe me or not, the two words above are the only lyrics in all of their songs. Renato Evangelista, the Provincial Coordinator of BHYC, admitted that these two words literally have no meaning to the mind, but he said that “it is the spirit that understands the words of the song”.
“’Yang kanta namin ay tumatagos sa kaluluwa ng bawat tao. Dumadaan sa cleansing ang kaluluwa nila kapag naririnig nila ‘to. Kaya kahit hindi nila naiintindihan, alam namin na naiintindihan ‘yon ng kaluluwa nila,” said Evangelista.
Meanwhile, students who hear the songs of BHYC are torn between the good side and the bad side of the music of the said organization.
Neil Jerome Celis, a third year Manufacturing Engineering and Management student, said that the sound BHYC creates soothes the minds of those who will hear it.
“Nakaka-relax kahit papano. Lalo na kapag galing ka sa matinding stress, magandan na rin na nakakarinig ka ng gano’ng mga tugtugin,” he said.
Meanwhile, Jizelle Jumaquio, a fourth year Civil Engineering student, said that she is fed up with the music of BHYC.
“High school pa lang ako e nag-e-exist na 'yang haribol chant na 'yan. Nakakasawa at nakakaburyong talaga kasi paulit ulit na lang, tipong wala ka na sa BulSU minsan nag uulit ulit pa sa utak mo,” she said.
BHYC is always open for those who are interested on their activities.
