Dear Bonifacio (Song)

Dear Bonifacio

Eight months after the successful release of PAGBABAGO PARA SA KARANIWANG TAO, a new song debuts today!

DEAR BONIFACIO is about hope in these trying times, and the commitment to do what is right and needed for a better nation. The song is a pledge to continue the Filipino’s unfinished struggle for real change, justice, prosperity and peace. A timely tribute for Supremo Andres Bonifacio’s 150th birthday!

Pagbabago Para sa Karaniwang Tao (Song)

Pagbabago Para sa Karaniwang Tao

Hi po! Heto po ang isang bagong awitin and I hope you could support it by sharing, liking, and requesting it on the airwaves.

With only a few days to go before the start of the 2013 election campaign period, artists and musicians should take part and speak out. Create art that would criticize the system, propel and enlighten people to elect leaders that would truly represent the interest of the many. Leaders that would fight to change the system para sa ikabubuti at ikauunlad hindi ng iilan kundi ng mas maraming karaniwan.

Tulad ng isinisigaw ng title at koro ng awitin, hangad ng Pilipino ang ‘Pagbabago para sa karaniwang tao!’

You can download your copy here. Muli, salamat po sa pagtangkilik ng makabayang musika!

The price hikes next week bring us ever closer to the highest ever price of P60 per liter recorded in 2008. And Malacanang is still not taking any decisive action to rein in oil prices and give the people relief … No wonder the term ‘noynoying’ has caught on. —Renato Reyes, Jr., BAYAN

Ayon sa facebook.com/Noynoying2012, ang Noynoying ay: ang pagiging tanga at nakatungaga sa panahon na dapat may ginagawa ka. Kung wala ka nga namang ginagawa sa kabila ng maraming kailangan gawin, tiyak na maihahalintulad ka sa nakaupong presidente ngayon ng bansa. At kung ikaw ang presidente ng bansa, ‘wag ka nang magtaka kung mapuna ka kasi hanap ng tao ay pagbabago.
