Overflowing with the magic of OPM songs transcending the sentiments of anonymous Ateneans, the Musikahan 2017 was held last night, August 14 at the Martin Hall.
Crowds cheered and sang along to the tune of various renditions of OPM songs. Categories of this year’s Alaala entries were inspired by different Laro ng Lahing Pilipino. Six bands interpreted the stories sent by Ateneans in accordance with this year’s theme, “Naaalala mo pa ba?”
The submission under “Nanay Tatay” category was interpreted by Pineapple Pen. “Luksong Baka”, “Patintero”, “Pitik Bulag”, “Tagu-taguan” and “Piko” were interpreted by Sirein, Studio B, Sinuglaw, Meumcor Band and Baked Spag respectively.
The Alaala entries were chosen by the SAMAHAN Communications (SAMAComms), the event organizers, in an earlier call for stories with the hashtag, #DearSAMAComms.
A Twitter contest was opened to the audience wherein participants tweeted their hugot stories using the hashtag #NaalalaKoPa. Prizes were given to the winners. At the end of the program, roses were given to selected students among the crowd.
Dea Gabrielle Manunod, a third year accountancy student enjoyed the event but can’t help to compare this year and last year’s Musikahan.
“It was fun. Compared sa last musikahan, mas clear yung pag-narrate ng stories kaya mas madaling maintindihan at maka-relate ang audience. Pero overall, distressing ang ganitong event. Wala munang acads. It was all just music and fun,” Manunod said.
