One of the biggest goals of the FILSCAP Songwriters’ Night is to encourage songwriters all over the Philippines to showcase their original compositions and be heard by fellow songwriters and music lovers so we usually allocate one location every year that is outside Metro Manila to give chance to others who can’t travel far. This year, we chose to feature the beauty of Visayan music.
Ryle Jhon performed “Isasayaw Ka” which was written because he was inspired by JK Labajo’s song “Buwan”.
Jose LG G. Fuentes’ “Prinsesa” is a sweet and charming song which makes it a perfect “harana” song. His dream is that someday, Cebuano songwriters will have more chances to showcase their songs.
Aia de Leon left the audience in awe as she shares an inspiring message to all the songwriters who joined us tonight and performed her hit songs “Sundo” and “Akap”. 😍😍😍
Stage power! Fullback Band serenaded the crowd with the song “Itatago”. They’re also one of our guaranteed slots winners. 👏
Rodrigo Selim’s “Ginikanan” is a song written for parents who have no time for their kids.
Davey Langit encouraged Cebuano songwriters to write more using their own language. He performed his Ilokano song “Idjay” which talks about his life story and “Cool Off” which he has written and popularized by Yeng Constantino during their Pinoy Dream Academy days.
Our media partner, Radyo Pilipino, chose among the songwriters who performed at the event for their radio guesting at Radyo Pilino DYRB Cebu. Those among the chosen songwriters are Christine Prado & Kim Docoy for “Nainlove Na” and Isabel Iris for “A Prayer In Silence”. 💯🙌
