The catchy, fast paced rhymes by singing duo Thyro Alfaro & Yumi Lacsamana did it for a second time around. This time may be sweeter as they are both songwriter and performer on the track TRIANGULO with featured artist Jeric Medina. TRIANGULO won the 1 million grand prize in the PHILPOP 2015 finals night held at the MERALCO Theater last July 25, 2015. The duo also won the grand prize in 2013 for writing /composing DATI performed by Sam Concepcion & Tippy Dos Santos.

Catchy, Relaxed and Confident

What eventually won it for Thyro & Yumi is how they were able to craft a catchy song describing the chaos of a love triangle. The Dawn vocalist Jett Pangan was part of the panel of judges in the finals he said, “I think the judges were unanimous in declaring their song as being so damn catchy. Their relaxed, confident performance also contributed to the goosebump factor.” 40% of the judging is done before the finals night another 60% is done on the awards night itself.

The very prestigious panel of judges includes: Maynilad CFO Randolph Estrellado, Quest rapper (aka Jose Villanueva III), Karylle, Louie Ocampo, Jett Pangan, Kris Lawrence and Paolo Valenciano. Kris Lawrence, Karylle and Quest were performers in previous PHILPOP Finals. Louie Ocampo is one of the premiere Musical directors.

For Yumi Lacsamana just being able to perform their song this year was enough of a reward by itself. The first time they won it they were songwriters of DATI and was interpreted by Sam Concepcion, Tippy Dos Santos with rapper Quest. She said, “Wala sa amin ang kumpetisyon it’s more of participating. It’s more of celebrating OPM together. Doon pa lang interpreting our own work is a big deal. Nanalo na kami doon pa lang. Kasi yon lang naman ang gusto namin. The opportunity to interpret our own work, doon pa lang tumigil na kaming makipag laban. Nag enjoy na lang kami after nung na laman naming kami mag interpret.”

Thyro also noted that experiencing PHILPOP Finals before also helped, “Siguro number one is the experience kasi, kumbaga sa NBA Finals naka rating na kami. Hindi sa pagmamayabang pero kanina di kami masyadong kinabahan e. Di kami ganoon nag eexpect this year kasi.”

Davey Langit’s Humor & Longing

Jett Pangan’s unique position of being the front man of one of the most iconic Pinoy rock bands and a rich history of performance in musicals and plays gives him a great insight on this contest. PHILPOP Exec. Dir Ryan Cayabyab was instrumental in tapping Jett as one of the panelist.

Jett described first runner up winner PARATINGIN MO NA SIYA , “Whoever went into the top 3 caught the hearts during the pre-judging and our hearts as well as judges. Davey’s song is a genius blend of humor and longing. Being bred in the school of hard knocks, I was never big on singing or songwriting contests. But I have to say; I couldn’t be happier accepting Mr. C’s invite to be one of the judges. It opened my eyes to the immense talent of the young artists who join PHILPOP. They really bolster confidence in OPM.”

Davey Langit is also a popular radio DJ for Pinas FM 95.5. The station has long been a supporter of OPM being the only station to play Pinoy music 100% of the time. Davey played the guitar and interpreted his own song PARATINGIN MO NA SIYA. He had a prestigious group that backed him up in Baihana, which definitely added some vocal dimension that night.

Thyro thought PARATINGIN MO NA SIYA was a strong candidate even before the finals. He also liked APAT NA BUWANG PASKO by Gino Cruz & Jeff Arcilla. The track was interpreted by comedian Jon Santos who just finished a successful stint as Auntie in RWM’s BITUING WALANG NINGNING. The hit musical will have a second run this October at the New Port Performing Arts Theater in Resort’s World Manila.

PHILPOP’s Driving Force

Just in the background admiring the performance of the artists is tycoon Manuel V Pangilinan. He has the foresight to pool resources of the corporations he helms to support the premiere songwriting competition in the country with the recognition of the need to bolster OPM. These companies include MERALCO, MAYNILAD, SMART, SPINNER, PLDT, NLEX, METROPACIFIC investments, SUN Cellular with Krem Top as co presenter.

Thyro gave a word of thanks to Pangilinan, “MVP is one of the driving forces of PHILPOP. Without him it wouldn’t be as successful as this. It’s inspiring that someone like MVP helps people like us. Most of the time people like us don’t get recognized. They only recognize either the song or the artist. Its good people like MVP would spend time and effort trying to prove to the world songwriters are the heart of the song.”
