Munting Atleta by Ayel, Kreyzi Bayrus, and Azukimi of 95Hundred Tunog Danao

IN A well-attended forum of scholar-athletes, Musika Central's newest music video project has been launched. The event was held at the Notre Dame of Dadiangas University (NDDU) on October 3, 2015.

Scholar-athletes from NDDU, Holy Trinity College, Ramon Magsaysay Memorial Colleges, and Mindanao Polytechnic College gathered to learn about the advocacy of Coach Jay Omila, Chairman of the Table Tennis Association of the Philippines, which is "Sports Ay Edukasyon," pegged on the opportunities for better education made available by getting into sports.

Here's the official music video of Munting Atleta:

Munting Atleta is an advocacy song for struggling Filipino Athletes and their quest for better life using their God-given talents in sports.

This is inspired by the story of the advocacy Coach Jay Omila, who helps send young athletes to school through his program in the Table Tennis Association of the Philippines (TATAP), of which he is the chairman. Several young athletes from General Santos City have been given scholarships to De La Salle Zobel, oneof the country's most expensive schools.

The song narrates the dreams, aspirations, and even the difficulties faced by young athletes. The video highlights the stark contrast between the situations of athletes who lack support and those who belong to an established sports organizations like the Table Tennis Association of General Santos City (TATAG). It speaks of the importance of providing greater support for young athletes.

Being in sports has numerous advantages. Being able to go school as a scholar athlete is a prime advantage. Another is developing a sense of discipline among our youth and leading them away from drugs and violence.

Tunog Danao takes part in shedding light on the plight of young athletes through this music video product.

Produced by Musika Central, 95Hundred, Tunog Danao Royalty Entertainment Production, this video is a testament of our desire to make a difference in the society through our music.

Our heartfelt thanks to Mr. Cary Cacdac and Coach Jay Omila.


Merong Forever by Ayel and AzukiMi Official Music Video

Here is a new song from 95HUNDRED and Tunog Danao entitled "Merong Forever."

It is always subject of debate today whether forever exists or not. The phrase, "Walang Forever" is almost an automatic response whenever people hear of a failed relationship. But we think otherwise.

While a lot of people think negatively about failed relationship, we ask,"Should we stop loving because we have been hurt once?"

This song and video relives the precious moments of love on its early stage.

For this video to become a reality, we would like to thank the following:

Bunzo of Hymnmagsikan Wrecords
Rovie Ann and Roviliza Perez
Kreyzi Bayrus
The guard and crew of Dunkin Donuts Pioneer
Chavez Family (especially to RJayand J-J Chavez)
Shoutouts also to Down South Krew (DSK) for their graffiti that we used as backdrop.

MusikaCentral continues to support GenSan's local artists.


#Hugot Official Music Video

Hello, guys! Here's another music video from GenSan's Local Artists, Phixon Dee of GMC, and Kf-One, Kreyzi Bayrus, and AYEL of Tunog Danao, entitled, #Hugot.

This song tells the story of someone who is torn between moving on and standing up for love.

Written and performed by Phixon Dee of GMC, Kf-One, Kreyzi Bayrus, and Ayel of TunogDanao (Tunog Mindanao), #Hugot is dedicated to all the "loves" we've lost.

The video shows three guys who had the same fate: left by their girls on the day of their anniversary. At the end of the video, their girls wanted them back. It's only a quick narrative posing the question: after being hurt by someone, will you still love that person again?

Thanks to MusikaCentral, Tunog Danao, Digmaang Heneral, and JRhyme of Explicit Records for making this happen.

Thanks also to Pizzahan, Champaca St., General Santos City for allowing us to shoot there.


Tanggap Ko by Bastardo

From the production team that brought you, Iyong Ganda, here is another song from the one and only Bastardo, Tanggap Ko.

Tanggap Ko is a song that many could relate to. Anyone who has been in a relationship that turned sour could attest how difficult it is to accept that the relationship failed and to move on. That is what this song is about.

Although it might sound positive as the title suggests, the persona in the song is in deep lamentation and remorse.

The video takes a playful side of the song's message. The persona, in his pain, attempts suicide several but always fails. Maybe, it is enough sign to believe that ONE SHOULD NOT COMMIT SUICIDE just for a lost love.

We did some twist in the ending. It is up to you to conclude if losing the girl (?) was something to regret or a good riddance.

Bastardo (Reinvincent Morales) is a popular rapper from GenSan. He is currently affiliated with a local group Tunog Danao and 95Hundred.


I'm Not Invincible by AYEL ft Kreyzi Bayrus

Here's the second collaboration between Ayel and KreyziBayrus. I'm Not Invincible is an expression of anguish of a guy who is always perceived to be strong that everyone looks up to him and admiring him but nobody truly cares about him and what he feels because of the preconception that he can always manage.

In the video we translated the message into a short-lived love story between a girl who meets this cool guy. This guy has done great things for the girl earning her admiration but not her love.

KreyziBayrus (Charles Cyril Boc) and Michelle Gamutin play the lead roles, with the participation of Mayshelle Gutierrez, AXL Grico, and Kf-One Represent. (Thanks a lot, guys, for making this  music video project possible! XOXO)

We would like to thank Piyesta KTV and Restobar at Robinson's Place GenSan for not apprehending us when we took our shots there. We'd also like to thank Fashion Fusion boutique for lending us the dresses worn by Michelle. Other shots were taken at Heaven's Star Kitchen.

Thanks also to Ripztah of Pulaw Records and Tunog Danao Royalty Entertainment Productions.

Here's our video:

Again, we're doing this for the love of music and art.


Mahika ni Monica by AXL Grico ft. AYEL Official Music Video

From the makers of Kinabuhi, Katarungan, Diwata sa Panaginip, and Iyong Ganda, comes another music video featuring local artists from GenSan -- Mahika ni Monica by AXL Grico featuring AYEL.

Mahika ni Monica is the first collaboration between me and AXL Grico. Mahika ni Monica is about a boy's obsession over a girl he has just met. In the video, we played a bit of mystery on the character of Monica. It is all up to the viewer to conclude what happens after the boy discovers the "magic" Monica used against him.

Mahika ni Monica stars Mi Va Ocmar in the lead role, with AXL Grico, Judie Drama, Kreyzi Bayrus (Charles Cyril Boc), a kid named Aziza Eto, and a pussy cat named, Laput.

Most of the scenes were shot at the Saavedra-Saway old house in Labangal, General Santos City. Others were taken secretly at one of the malls in the city.

Here's the video:

This video did not cost us anything, just pure love for music and art. This doesn't give us anything in return, too, except for the feeling that we've expressed ourselves and shown our talents.

After Mahika ni Monica, another music video is coming out soon. It's gonna be my debut as a local recording artist. :)

Thanks for your support!

MusikaCentral Interviews: Abra Live in GenSan

MusikaCentral was lucky to have been given the chance to interview Abra before the start of his concert in GenSan with other rappers and artists like Loonie, Ron Henley, DJ Buddha, MJ Cayabyab and Cliff Hogan (a.k.a. Justin Bieber of the Philippines).

Abra was so kind to grant us an interview. He gladly answered the questions I asked him. And, well, he was generous with his answers.

Here's the video of my interview with Abra:

Asked about the difference between being an underground songwriter before and now that he has joined the mainstream music industry, he said that the audience now is bigger. In terms of the quality of the songs, he said that there is no pressure about what he should write about. He said that once you write a song, it has to come from the heart. "Pag hindi galing sa puso, mararamdaman naman ng audience 'yun eh." (When it's not coming from your heart, the audience will feel it, too.)

At the backstage, Abra looked so innocent and so calm -- far different from his personality once he stepped on the stage and heard the scream of his fans. Abra is a passionate performer. Abra's fans went wild the moment he appeared on stage, so much wilder than the other performers' turn.

MusikaCentral wishes Abra more success in his career and we are looking forward to Abra's coming back in GenSan.
