Exciting Times for!

We had an extremely fruitful and stimulating meeting for HARANA.PH together with the awesome partners this afternoon, and I must say, exciting times are at hand. Being the first and only professional serenade service in the industry has its perks - you get to constantly goof around with all of these creative, bizarre ideas being thrown at the table by crazy people, and no one can compare you to anyone. If all things go smoothly and as planned (I hope), you will definitely hear more about us, more people will be kilig by us and more people around the country will be feeling the love and pleasantly surprised by a simple pinoy tradition we locally call "harana", done the HARANA.PH way. Yup, the work ahead is challenging, but we love what we do, we are artists by nature, and we certainly love shocking people (seriously, some of us don't even call this WORK). I still remember our first harana , where we serenaded Jane from her husband Albert. That really started it all. I got so inspired and hyped up about it, I even sent my own wife a harana during our 3rd year anniversary. Seeing her cry out of happiness (and embarrassment hehe) made me realize that, hey wait a minute, this thing could really grow into something people are going to talk about. Hmm.. hopefully it's not because ABS-CBN artist Guji Lorenzana serenaded for her and made her think why I couldn't be as good looking as that (joke!). Then inquiries started coming in trickles, and finally, created its first marriage proposal for Ronald and Kimika (of course it was a "YES!"). After guesting in Umagang Kay Ganda the day before Valentine's day of this year, was the domino effect for us. From serenading at the Senate from Sen. Ralph Recto , to more marriage proposals , and doing haranas late at night , we decided to make HARANA.PH grow in a big way, and to promote world peace while we are at it. I urge everyone to check out our Facebook video page for more of our serenades. They're not all perfect, but they will be.

As we move forward to becoming a company with global clients (we would love to service our overseas Filipino workers to send something more than imported chocolates to their loved ones here; and of course, our foreign friends - Check out a recent video here of a harana from overseas -A Birthday Harana @ Gloria Jeans ) and nationwide recipients (Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao! - went all the way to Baguio City on this video - Harana@ Cafe by the Ruins ). Sending your love will also have no time-barriers, as we can do surprises 24 by 7, but hopefully you won't make us get your grandmother out of her bed at midnight. We have ninety artists and musicians waiting to serenade your loved ones (and our family is growing rapidly!). The HARANA.PH giftshop, which we plan to launch very very soon, will allow you to send just about anything to your loved ones in the Philippines (yes, even lechon manok).

As we learn from our inevitable mistakes, make radical changes and improvements, innovate, and perfect our element of surprise, HARANA.PH will not only deliver the only service of its kind, but also the best. This year will usher in the best artists, best musicians, best talent and best "surprise" specialists, to make sure that every single event we do for our clients is a special one. We will turn HARANA.PH into something we Filipinos can be proud of. A one of its kind business, a one of its kind service, a one of its kind tradition. Truly Pinoy. We do this all for the glory of our God.

Thank you for all the support. Share the love! God bless you all.

Jason dela Rosa
Founder, HARANA.PH


  1. It never fails to amaze me of how this idea was first conceived, truly a very unique and interesting one. I give kudos to our founder "Mr.Jason dela Rosa". A few years back when we were having our usual tete-a-tete @ Robinsons Galleria he mentioned this wonderful idea asking me if we'll have a market for it? Well back then frankly speaking with the technology that we had it was feasible yes, but time was not on our side. There were certain factors which held us in implementing this one of a kind business venture. It was late 2006 yet computer literacy in our country was just starting to grow and to try & incorporate the classic serenade "Harana" within the web would surely be a hell of a task. Eventually the idea died a natural death. Again it wasn't the time for it. We weren't ready.
    Now a few months ago this idea was revived & after not seeing each other for a long time we were reunited Jason & I, the idea just blew my mind. A simple question from our Founder "Do I have your support Try? without any hesitation, no doubt at all, I said Yes! Of Course!. From that day I started consolidating artists & instrumentalists. Coordinating here and there from the very first serenade of Mr. Edil Luyon & Vince Alaras up to the Event @ SMX Center.
    There were a few bumps along the way and I could say a lot of headaches. But it's all part of it, we've grown to cherish each and every single harana that we did and I suppose that's one thing that makes very unique... we strive to make everything extra special with our clients (: and that's the most important thing. I do apologize for not being that articulate with this blog, it just excites me to share everything in black & white (: To everyone who has persevered and endured Kudos to you all. has come along way and it's really here to stay this time . Let's spread the love & make our country proud . With God as our center, anything & everything is possible. Mabuhay!!! ang mga "Musikerong Filipino" Mabuhay!!! ang ""
