19 August 2018

As part of their campaign to promote their culture and cultivate their talents as Cordilleran migrants, members of the Pinatud a Saleng ti Umili (PSU HK) held a songwriting competition on Aug. 12 at Pier 10 in Central.

Taking top honors was Linlyn Andrada Subido for her original competition, “Karapatan Namin”, sung by Andrada Clan. Second prize winner was Iris Ticagan, composer of “Paglayo”, which was sung by her group, Singles and Doubles.

The contest rules specified that singers representing the contestants would first sing the Cordillerans’ unity song, “Nasa Atin ang Panahon” from the group Buklod, before presenting their original composition.

According to PSU-HK president Joseline Tanguid, her group stages a Dap-ayan cultural event every two months and the song writing competition was one of the activities held as part of this.

Tanguid said that through these cultural activities, the group hopes not only to promote unity but also to empower members so they are better equipped to find solutions to issues faced by migrants both in and out of the Philippines.
