Every Plucked String is a Melody - A Harpist in Cebu

One of the least played stringed instruments in the Philippines is the harp. Finding a harpist is like finding a pearl in the ocean. And, I was able to find that kind of pearl a couple of days back. I was at  Parkmall in Cebu looking for something to buy. As I was walking down the center aisle of the place, I heard a sweet smooth sound coming from a harp. I never thought twice to capture every melody. Sorry about the audio. It was captured using a cellphone. :) As soon as the harpist ended his set, I approached him and asked for his name. He is Ronnie Custa ñ os. He is not a schooled musician and learned every note from his father. He has been playing the instrument for over 18 years. I was very glad to have met with such brilliant talent. "Mao ra gyud ni nga stringed instrument ang imong makita sa Bible" - Ronnie Custa ñ os -
