Independence Day at SM Dasmarinas: Celebrating Pinoy Talents

Filipinos are considered as one of the very talented people in the world. We all know that there are Filipinos who stand out in dancing, singing, acting, magic, acrobatics, gymnastics, flair tending and other variety acts. That is why, talent shows are aired on TV in order to discover the best talents in our country. In addition, there are acts who stand out and having a lot of gigs and shows because they have the raw talent.

Last June 12, SM Dasmarinas celebrated Independence Day by showing the world-class Filipino acts. It was started with a simultaneous flag raising ceremony at 8:30 a.m. The opening program was attended by Congressman Elpidio "Pidi" Barzaga, Mayor Jenny Barzaga, SM Dasmarinas executives and employees, Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, police officers, students from National College of Science and Technology, teachers and visitors. The highlight of the program was the Butterfly Release with Mayor Jenny Barzaga and Congressman Pidi Barzaga of Dasmarinas. In addition, a chorale group from Dasmarinas City presented a medley of classic OPM love songs to serenade the viewers as well with the singing of national anthem during the flag raising ceremony.

Bughaw Folkloric Dance Group, a cultural dance troupe and semi-finalist from Pilipinas Got Talent Season 4 presented different folk dances from Paso Doble, Curacha and Tinikling. In addition, they closed the flag raising program with their quarter finals piece. I really appreciated their performance because of the colorful costumes and props, lively choreography, happy facial expressions, harmonious and classic accompaniment from rondalla and the amazing and remarkable dance routine. All of them did a fantastic job in presenting their quarter finals piece in the show. Truly, they represent genuine Filipino talent plus they prove that "It's More Fun in the Philippines" because of the variety of folk dances they show in just one cultural presentation.

In the afternoon, two acoustic acts from different seasons of Pilipinas Got Talent geared up the stage and gave their electrifying jamming session. First, Buildex Pagales from second season serenaded the audience with his rendition of Pinoy hits such as "Magasin" by Eraserheads, "Alipin" by Shamrock and "Nasa Iyo na ang Lahat" by Daniel Padilla. His voice truly resembles to Bruno Mars plus he got the stage presence plus the song choices are very good for his vocal range.
They also had their own style of checking the sound system by performing the "Soundcheck Song".

After Buildex, the acoustic trio MP3 Band rendered an electrifying acoustic session with OPM rock and classic love songs. They performed a mash-up of "Come Together" by The Beatles, "Billie Jean" by Michael Jackson and "Moves Like Jagger" by Maroon 5 plus their audition piece "Yugyugan Na" by P.O.T. They have the raw talent where three acts composed of Aries Sales (singer), Mckoy (beatboxer) and guitarist  (LJ Manzano) combined in one great act. They also performed OPM classics including "Si Aida, Si Lorna o Si Fe" by Marco Sison, "Ipagpatawad Mo" by VST & Co., "Mahirap Magmahal ng Syota ng Iba" by APO Hiking Society (quarter finals piece), "Di Bale Na Lang" by Gary Valenciano (semi-finals piece) and "Elisi" by Rivermaya. Therefore, the show closed with an energetic beatboxing number done by Mckoy.

Therefore, SM Dasmarinas presented a great show from morning till afternoon. They did a wonderful cultural show to commemorate our heritage and giving a show which is current nowadays by Original Pilipino Music acoustic revivals. Truly, Filipinos are rich in talent which is part of our cultural legacy.
