Young GMA star Kelvin Miranda releases feel-good song ‘Sumayaw’

Kelvin Miranda

Sparkle’s talented and sought-after leading man Kelvin Miranda has released a groovy single under GMA Music, titled “Sumayaw.” It is now on all digital streaming platforms worldwide.

The upbeat track was composed by Viktor Nhiko Sabiniano for his long-time friend, Kelvin. He made sure that the song will be personal to Kelvin, focusing on significant points in his life. According to Kelvin, the music is not about love but rather about how he is looking for the courage to take a leap of faith.

Kelvin feels nervous and excited at the same time with the launch of his single: “Sa totoo lang, medyo kinakabahan ako kasi first time namin maglalabas ng upbeat na kanta. Siyempre nai-excite rin ako na marinig ng fans dahil pinaghandaan talaga ito ng kaibigan kong si Nhiko Sabiniano at ni Sir Paulo Agudelo. Talagang pinag-usapan at in-arrange nila ng maganda itong kanta.”

He shared what the song is all about: “For me, ’yung word nasayaw’ is a metaphor of being carefree. Parang okay let’s dance, ’wag na muna natin intindihin ’yung mga problema kahit for once. Kung may problema ka, isayaw mo na lang. ’Yung mensahe niya is huwag mo pigilan ang sarili mo maging masaya sa mga bagay na alam mong makakapagpasaya sa iyo at hindi makakasama for you.”

Siguro kaya ito ’yung napili nilang genre for me is part siya ng exploration, kumbaga pagdating kasi sa music limitless talaga. Kailangan gawa lang ng gawa and kailangan i-explore lahat ng bagay para makabuo ng mas magandang piyesa. Parang artwork siya na kailangan mong lumikom ng iba’t ibang ideas at tunog,” Kelvin further explained.

Meanwhile, Kelvin is optimistic about the future of his music career: “Pinag-uusapan namin nina Sir Tyronne [Escalante], ’yung manager ko, kung paano namin tatahakin o aayusin ’yung music career ko. Hinahanap pa namin kung anong genre ang babagay for me and talagang magki-click. Kaya itong ‘Sumayaw,’ part ito ng pag-explore namin kung bagay sa akin or baka may ipipiga pa. Mahirap pero nag-enjoy naman kaming gawin ito. Sana sa mga susunod pang taon, kung mabibigyan pa lalo ng opportunity, maganda pa sana ang mangyari sa music career ko.”

Anxious…but waiting for Christmas

MY Christmas lights and small parols are finally up, as I courageously welcome the holiday season like the rest of our anxious kababayans. I admit I had to do the Yuletide decorating gradually, as brain-fogged me couldn’t initially remember where I had stashed all the holiday accessories and trimmings, and because I didn’t want to shell-shock the power bill just yet.

‘Sa Paglupad ka Banog’: Winning myth

THERE is a film that is gaining not only awards but admiration from all over the world (it has participated and won accolades in film festivals in Portugal, Los Angeles, New Zealand, Hanoi, Vietnam, Colombia… the list goes on). It is a short film of a myth coming from the Panay-Bukidnon, a geographical area that is demarcated by the mountains of the Capiz-Lambunao as well as those located around Antique and Iloilo. Their isolation has brought about for these indigenous communities also a kind of proto-enclosure, which to folklorists and cultural workers best explains why they have been able to “preserve” their rituals and literatures against the modernizing elements around them.
