Yesterday, I experienced for the first time a full pabasa. It had the works. Santos all dressed up at an altar, Pasyon books with the verses that to be sang, a CD with a recorded accompaniment of the pabasa and of course the readers, family, friends, visitors and the food!
I was wondering, isn’t there a videoke version of the Pabasa? I’m sure some people have thought of this already. This is what I have in mind:
- A CD that can be installed in the traditional Pinoy videoke machine that we find in every corner around the archipelago, wherever there’s a piyesta or inuman.
- It will have the lyrics of the defunct standard Pasyon.
- You can select the page number of the Pasyon book as if you were choosing a song number on the videoke.
- The images of the videoke will reflect images of the Passion of Christ
- Users can choose from among a dozen different tunes of the Pasyon from traditional, regional to modern (ocho-ocho or Papaya pasyon)
- And here’s the clincher! After more than 12 hours (or, for some, 24 hours) of the pasyon, the familiar concluding tune will play: “tatantan tan tan tan taaaaaaaaaan!!!!” and a score will display how well you sang your e-pasyon!
