Maritess Temple became a Japayuki at age 14 in 1984, singing in clubs in Kyoto and Tokyo, chaperoned by her mother Linda. Seven years later, Maritess would record the song "Japayuki," written by Vehnee Saturno, under WEA Records, giving a face and a voice to the marginalized group of migrant women workers who, like her, went to Japan to work for a living and get a life.

Japayuki is a Japanese slang term coined in the late 1980s to refer to Filipinos working as entertainers in Japan. The term took a derogatory turn when some of these entertainers were found to be working as prostitutes, or were forced to engage in the sex trade by unscrupulous talent recruiters.

"At that time, being a Japayuki was a prestigious occupation. Sosyal ang club na kinakantahan ko sa Kyoto," says Maritess, sipping Margarita and munching chicken in a restaurant in Robinson's Galleria, Ortigas Center. "Marlene dela Peña also sang in that club."

Dela Peña is a jazz singer who became popular in Japan in the 1980s and still reigns there as a pop icon with at least 30 albums to her name. She also trained under Quincy Jones in the U.S. where she recorded four albums.

Like Dela Peña, Maritess showed promise in her music. But unlike the jazz singer, Maritess betrayed that promise when she fell in love with a rich, handsome Japanese businessman almost 20 years her senior. They had two children, a boy and a girl, now both in their early 20s.

"I JUST WANTED TO SING." Maritess returned to Manila in 1988 rolling in Yen and basking in love. Half-heartedly she embarked on a showbiz career, recording her first album, "Maritess," with the carrier single "Don't Change Me," under WEA Records.

"I didn't care much about show business," says Maritess, 40. "That was my problem. "I had no desire to be famous. I just wanted to sing. I wasn't hungry for fame and publicity. I wanted to walk in malls unrecognized."

She approached her career recklessly, not showing up for shows "because I had my own money anyway."

Maritess owned a music bar, Versomina, on Jupiter Street in Bel-Air, Makati. She managed it herself and sang there most evenings.

In 1991, while talking to songwriter Vehnee Saturno, Maritess had a brainwave: Why not record a song about the Japayuki? After all, she was a Japayuki.

"That was the first time Vehnee heard the term Japayuki," Maritess recalls. "I explained to him what it was like being a Japayuki, the prejudices against us, the loneliness."

Japayuki kung kami'y tawagin doon

Pag-awit ang s'yang pakay doon

H'wag naman sanang pulaan at pintasan

Ito ang tangi kong nalalamang paraan

Japayuki, pagbigyan naman ng puwang

The song became Maritess's palpable plea for understanding the Japayuki experience and the album went on to a nomination as the Best Pop Rock Album in the 1991 Aliw Awards.

Maritess, however, remained uneasy about the fame that came with "Japayuki's" success.

"I still didn't have that drive for stardom," she says.

Juan Silos, Jr., also known as the "Father of Rondalla" is a prominent composer and arranger who formed several Rondalla groups including school rondallas at St. Anthony's Institution, Centro Escolar University, Assumption College, Stella Maris College, College of the Holy Spirit, University of Santo Thomas, and the Far Eastern University.

One of the many songs he composed was "Waray Waray". He was also the person behind the success of the "All-Star Filipino Rondalla" in 1949 which displayed its versatility with the performance of Tchaikovsky's Piano Concert No. 1 in B-flat and Khatchaturian's Saber Dance during Benny Goodman's farewell concert in 1949.
