Fresh from Himig Handog’s 2019 awarding, First Runner-up Prize Winner Davey Langit joined us for the FILSCAP Campus Caravan at Mint College.
Easily, he got the students’ attention by sharing his stories on how he made his chart-topping hits like the “Selfie Song”, “Dalawang Letra” interpreted by the Itchyworms, and his latest award-winning track “Simula ng Dulo” which won as the 2nd best song at the Himig Handog 2019.
“If you are a songwriter, you are a storyteller.
So you have to carefully choose the words to use but don’t be afraid to innovate.”
He has emphasized the importance of learning to collaborate with others and encouraged the students that they should not be afraid to innovate especially in writing songs.
SONGWRITING TIPS FROM DAVEY LANGIT
- Wag mong sundan ang nagawana
- Gumawa ng kanta na wala pa
- Play around with English and Tagalog words or even use your dialect
- Always be true to the story that you are telling
He then charmed the students more by performing his song “Idjay”. It was truly a fun-filled event and we’re truly grateful to everyone for their energy!
Now, off to our next campus!
