A Kankanaey Love Song

You gotta love this video. It is simple but meaningful and heartfelt. It is one of my favorites. It helps of course that the model is beautiful (she should have joined Starstruck) and the singer himself looks quite good.

Okay, for those of you who don’t speak Kankanaey, the song is about a man’s unexpressed love to a woman because the woman comes from an economically better-off family. This might sound silly in 2006 but I think it is a common story in the elder days.

Credits for this video go to: Jefferson Anton (performer), Andrew Paulino Jr. (lyricist), and Jun Garcia (producer). Great job and more power to you all.

  1. Hei there Biil,

    Jefferson Anton is one of the young artist that are being groomed as future singers from the group “The Pioneers”. If I’m not mistaken, this group was groomed by the Country FM Station in Baguio – Magic FM 99.9. They ha concerts as a group and individual performances as well.

  2. Hi Anon (12:19)
    Thanks for the info about the group. Its good to know that a radio station helped them. A lot of artists are not that fortunate to have a corporate support. Welcome to the blog 🙂
