Kundansoy and His Tuba (Coconut Wine)


Kundansoy inom tuba, Laloy;
Dili ako inom tuba pait aslom.
Kundansoy inom tuba, Laloy;
Dili ako inom tuba pait aslom.
Ang tuba sa baybay, patente moangay;
Talaksan nga dyutay, puno guid sang laway.
Ang tuba sa baybay, patente moangay;
Talaksan nga dyutay, puno guid sang laway.

This is a song about tu-BA^, the Philippines' coconut wine. It is derived from the sap coming out of cut coconut flower stalks that are stilll unopened. The ma-nang-GI-ge or coconut climber (coconut pilot, if you may) who can almost literally walk up the upright coconut tree gathers the collected juice from hanging containers after leaving them catcing the dripping overnight.

The juice, which is white in color, is then turned into a more delicious orange color by an herb called ba-LOK. But you can also still opt for the less popular but equally delicious bitter-sour tasting white tuba^. Coconut wine then turns into vinegar when it has been fermented for a few days thereafter.
