The Singapore Tremolo Strings return to perform rondalla music from the Philippines. A string instrument played using the plectrum or pick, the rondalla was first introduced to the Philippines when it was part of the Spanish East Indies. Certain rondalla performance styles were adopted by the locals, with guitars and bandurias used in local folk dances like the pandanggo, Philippine jota and the polka. As a result of its Spanish roots, elements of Filipino rondalla songs bear similarity to those native to Aragon in Spain.

The Singapore Tremolo Strings performs on the Tremolo 14 Model ̶ a set of five instruments (piccolo, prime, alto, tenor and baritone). The full ensemble is an octet with the addition of the guitar, bass and percussion. It is currently part of a developmental project in this region.
