Put Tai Nobio

Puti Tai Nobiu

Ha tuge’ I tutuhun I tano’
Gi hatdin I paraisu
Si Yu’us ha na’fanhuyong
Flores siha ni’ mambunitu
Si Yu’us ha na’fanhuyong
Meggai siha na milagro
Ha na’dokko’ giya paraisu
Un flores trongkon hayu

Puti tai nobiu, ai puti tainobiu
Milagron Si Yu’us Bunitan-mu
Puti tai nobiu ai put tainobiu
Mampos I pinalacha-mu

Flores hao gi halom flores
Tumachu hao gi kastiyu
Buente hao kalang I ninu
Lao I na’an-mu gos piligro
I na’an-mu ma adahi
Sa’ sahnge hao gi batkada
Puti tai nobiu na flores
Ai parehu estoria-ta

Puti tai nobiu, ai puti tainobiu
Milagron Si Yu’us Bunitan-mu
Puti tai nobiu ai put tainobiu
Mampos I pinalacha-mu

Flores hao gi halom flores
Maolekna ti hu mafanagu
Sa’ chatpa’go yu’ mohon
Ti hu padedesi este pa’go
Embediosa yu’ nu Hagu
Put tai nobiu na flores
Sa’ yanggen hu konsedera
I bida-hu ha’ tumanges
I bida-hu ha’ tumanges

Puti tai nobiu, ai puti tainobiu
Milagron Si Yu’us Bunitan-mu
Puti tai nobiu ai put tainobiu
Mampos I pinalacha-mu

Manlaolaolao I kersaon-hu
Ai yanggen hu konsedera
Este taya’ nai nobiu-hu
Maolekna mohon ti hu sottera
Puti tai nobiu na flores
Lastima I bunita-hu
Sa’ taya’ yu’ na ma espiha
Buente put I delikao-hu

Puti tai nobiu, ai puti tainobiu
Milagron Si Yu’us Bunitan-mu
Puti tai nobiu ai put tainobiu
Mampos I pinalacha-mu

Dichosa hao na trongkon flores
Ma guaiya hao kalang kirida
Sa’ tituka yan malamana
Hafa na sigi ha’ hao ma espiha
Bai hu dispidi hao trongko flores
Hu respeta I na’an-mu
Lao mungga yu’ madalalaki
Sa’ sumen maolek saga-mu

Puti tai nobiu, ai puti tainobiu
Milagron Si Yu’us Bunitan-mu
Puti tai nobiu ai put tainobiu
Mampos I pinalacha-mu

The Kasuals

I found and “borrowed” this bio of the Kasuals from this blog. I would normally just leave the bio to the link to do the job, but just in case said blog post disappears, it’s here too.

Frank ‘Bokonggo’ Pangelinan – Katrina

One of my all time top favorite Chamorro songs is one titled “Katrina”, by Frank Bokonggo Pangelinan. I actually didn’t hear it for the first time until I was stationed in Korea, spending a year away from the wife and kids. It became my heartwarming, curl up and get mahalang song.

This is Bokonggo’s original release version – the one I fell in love with while in Korea and missing my baby….…

Putting the Chamorro and Hawaii CDs into MP3

I’ve been ripping CDs, trying my best to convert vinyl and cassette tape to .mp3 format. I’ve been thinking of then uploading them to the web site server and linking them to be played like I did when I had my web site on geocities (remember www.geocities.com/tropics/theshores/9350…). I’m still debating if it’s worth the effort it would take to build a library collection out of it.…
