Watch Jessica Soho episode on 'Kalam'

A few weeks ago, Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho featured the mass media, particularly broadcast, industry of the Philippine provinces which employ the use of the local language. Because we our doing the first ever Kapampangan TV drama, they decided to feature us to represent the Kapampangans.



This is the second time a Kamaru project has attracted national television. If you can still remember, RocKapampangan was also featured months ago when they did a segment on Promdi Rock.



What's negative about Jessica Soho is that she doesn't see the distinction between a language and a dialect. She would call the Kapampangan language a dayalekto (dialect), sometimes, wika (language). Researchers should advise her on the difference of the two, and that non-Tagalog Philippine languages are, well, languages, not dialects.


Second is the constant labeling of provincial products as Promdi products. Promdi rock, promdi telenovelas, etc. It implies a centralized view of the Philippines -- Manila is Philippines, and if you come from the province, there's a special label for you.



If you failed to watch the 'Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho' featuring Kalam, it's now on YouTube:

This blog could be more exciting if you can create another topic that everyone can relate on.

Mangagaral-gal no kanyan ken takut uling mabawas no naman kanyan deng suki rang managalug.Istu mu ita uling dapat tayang paulagahan ing kekatamung lipi.Daramdaman ku masaya la reng kekatamung pipunpunan at midinan yang dalan ing kekatamung amanung sisuan king mismung kekatamung balen.Mag-saya ka kanakung balen at dininan yeng sala ing ketamung lenguaji na digsu niyamu mitda nung emu keng pamagsakrapisyu yung gewa. Dacal a salamat kekayu lalu na kang Sisigman.Luid ka balen kung kapampangan.
