Anihan – The Araw ng Aurora 2007 Theme Song

This celebration theme song thingy has been going on for three years. It was a brainchild of Mr. Christopher Gonzales – the provincial tourism head who is now on leave. The first one was used for the Street Dance competition. It was titled “Pagsibol” and composed and performed by some members of the band Reggae Mistress. The second one is called “Paatag” created by Doc Urbino who is a member of Manila band Chubibo. It was a collaboration of artists coming from different bands.

This year, Aurora Day’s theme music is much closer to home. Mr. Jonathan Urbano from Baler, with some help from friends, composed, produced and performed in Anihan, the theme music of Araw ng Aurora 2007 celebrations. I’ve heard all the three songs i mentioned and this is the best in the bunch.
