This is a developed country because everyday the population keeps going up and increasing. They migrated from the Spanish from King Phillip II. Particular groups that move to this country would be like be with Chinese and sometimes American. People have been leaving the country of the data chart of the yearly population growth rate but the population is still rising. This music is about the nations history because of the instrumental tunes and melodies that are soft. Styles like traditional Philippine styles can be made from the Spanish when they ruled the Philippines for a long period of time. Three Filipino styles of music is Philippines gong music but people know it as “gangsa,” haranan and kundiman. Haryana and kundiman were not popular until the the time when the Spanish time in the 19th century happened. Top 3 most famous sport in the Philippines would be Basketball being the number one, Volleyball being number 2, and number tatlo which is 3 in Filipino is Football but when they say football they mean by soccer just exactly how the British say soccer.

Natural resources in the Philippines would be fruity that are exotic amid here is lots of land and mountains trees and nature is in the Philippines.
Manila capital of Republic of the Philippines would be an incredible journey if you go visit because what I learned about the Philippines while doing his was people have their own culture and celebrate things differently at different times, how this country got so popular and has lots of population and how the history of what ruled the land before, how the climate and weather are a good fit for their beaches and bays, their taste of music and how it is highly famous, and lastly how these island make one whole nation with its history.My final thoughts on this country is that it went through so much of things happening its one whole nation itself.
