Reading of "Canto del Viajero" on Jose Rizal's Birthday
The Greater Toronto Area has two landmarks depicting Philippine national hero Jose Rizal whose birthday is celebrated today, June 19. Notable of the two is the larger-than-life statue sculpted by artist Mogi Mogado in Markham, Ontario. The other is the bust made of cold cast bronze measuring 2.6ft x 2 ft x 1 ft, mounted on a 6.6 feet granite pedestal at Earl Bales Park in North York, Toronto. During a brief visit on the occasion of Philippine independence day on Friday, June 12, 2020, Toronto's Filipino community appeared to have forgotten that Jose Rizal's execution by musketry on December 30, 1896, was the spark that triggered the Philippine revolution that led to the declaration of independence from colonizer Spain on June 12, 1898. Sentro Rizal Toronto of the Philippine Consulate General Toronto commemorates the event with a reading of his "Canto del Viajero" instead of the usual ceremony at his bust monument owing to health and safety concerns due to the coronavirus pandemic. The following presentation is a project of Sentro Rizal of the Philippine National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA), participated in by Sentro Rizal Centers around the world. Featured is Dr. Rizal’s poem, Canto del Viajero, by representatives from different Sentro Rizal Centers. The Spanish poem was translated in English and Filipino by National Artists Nick Joaquin (Song of the Wanderer) and former NCCA Chairman Virgilio Almario (Awit ng Biyahero), respectively.
