Comments Off on Philippines Department of Tourism post new Tara Na Biyahe Tayo! video

I think the original version was released in 2004 (or before).  It was a collaboration of OPM artists who did not ask for talent fee.  The original Pilipino music artists included my idol the late Francis Magalona, Sharon Cuneta, April Boy Regino, Rey Valera, etc.

Their video can be seen here, and compare it with the 2012 video featured at the bottom of this article.

That was the song introduced with the advocacy of the theme “Wow Philippines” at that time.

The Lyrics are as follows.

Pilipinas, tara na! Byahe Tayo!

Byahe Tayo Lyrics

After 6 months battling leukemia, Master Rapper, actor and TV host Francis Magalona,  died Friday, March 6, 2009 at 12:20 pm at the Medical City hospital in Pasig City. He was 44.

Official cause of death was acute myelogenous leukemia.

The rapper even requested for blood donations to replace the blood he was using at the Medical City hospital in Ortigas Avenue where he was being treated.

“I have been diagnosed with leukemia and I am preparing for my treatment. Sa tulong ng Panginoon, kakayanin ko po ito,” he said.  “Abangan nyo ang aking pagbabalik. ‘Di ko lang kayo ‘miss’… LOVE KO kayong lahat.”
