About

Harana Cebu is a Cebu-based online gift shop which was conceptualized out of our passion for music.

Harana is a traditional form of courtship which was done in the olden days. Though serenade is universal, it was more commonly practiced in the Philippines.

Harana Cebu wants the new generation to be able to relive this part of our history and experience the gift of song. Because a gift with a serenade can say so much more.


What is Harana?

Harana has been widely practiced in the Philippines, decades, if not hundreds of years ago. This was more commonly practiced in smaller towns. A man goes to the house of the woman he is courting and sings love songs to her.

When a man serenades a woman, it is a symbol of courage and great love. It is probably one of the purest form of expression of one’s emotions.

This practice of courtship however has dissipated in the advent of technology and modernization. Harana Cebu understands that the giving of gifts is no simple feat, especially if you want someone to feel extra loved.

By bringing back this somewhat forgotten tradition, we aim to make every moment extra special, more memorable, more meaningful. It will make the idea of gift giving more well-planned and carried out with extra attention.

Love can be expressed in so many ways. But no one can argue that a song is definitely one of the best ways to tell someone how much they mean to you.
