ANAK launches official 10th Anniversary Theme Song OPM Pinoy Tayo

Winnipeg High School Students Craft Tune to inspire Filipino-Canadian Youth

Winnipeg, December 8, 2015 – On CKJS Good Morning Philippines, ANAK officially launched Pinoy Tayo, a locally produced OPM written and composed by Winnipeg high school students.
“It was very hard. We didn’t know what we were doing at first, but [ANAK] helped us polish things up,” said grade ten vocalist Hazel Panaligan.
Pinoy Tayo is written both in English and Tagalog and features local talents ranging from grades nine to twelve who contributed to the instrumentals and vocals through the mentorship of facilitator, Johsa Manzanilla.
“Every year ANAK has a Youth Forum which brings together students from all over Winnipeg. This year’s theme was Ekspresyon. Those in the music workshop wanted to express what their identity means to be Filipino-Canadian,” said Manzanilla. “This is what they came up with.”
The overwhelming response for the song’s positive message has prompted ANAK to record and share it with the broader community. It is now ANAK’s tenth anniversary theme song for 2016.
