Its overture is an enthusiastic beat of an ethnic drum, perhaps gimbal. In a few counts, the enchanting chant of Maan Chua (I should know) resounds until a burst of harmony from the instruments kulintang, kubing, and some stringed instrument I am no expert at completes the ensemble. And finally, the unique voices of Mindanawon artists Popong Landero, Joey Ayala, Bayang Barrios, Maan Chua, Raffy Ayala, Maree Cantaoi Cayas, and the female band Duchess in Throne weaved the euphoric musical colors of the newest anthem for the 32nd Kadayawan Festival entitled “Kadayawan, Kahiusahan.”

The full version of the song was released on Tuesday by the official Facebook page of the festival Kadayawan sa Davao. “The song talks about the celebration of Kadayawan as an ageless story of unity and resiliency,” the caption says.

The song is a refreshing addition to the Kadayawan music repertoire following the one composed and performed by Dandin Ranillo in 2011. The song was entitled “Davao (Kadayawan sa Davao)” which spoke purely of the festival and the interesting and iconic spots in the city.

Kadayawan, Kahiusahan (Kadayawan, Celebration in Unity) was composed and arranged by Mindanawon country, folk, and reggae artist Popong Landero.

Kadayawan
Kasaulogan
Kasaganaan ng pamayanan
Kahiusahan natong tanang
Napulo ug usang kaliwatan
(KADAYAWAN, CELEBRATION,
THE TIMELESS GENEROSITY
UNITE US)

Sa dagat, lawa, kapatagan, kabukiran
Nagtitipon-tipon, salo-salo sa biyaya
(WE CO-EXIST WITH NATURE AND GATHER TOGETHER TO SHARE ITS GRACES)

Matatag na pamayanan
Di natitinag ang kahiusahan
(IN THE SPIRIT OF RESILIENCY AND STRENGTH, WE ARE UNITED)

Pasalamatan ta ang Kahitas-an
Sa biyaya ng kalikasan
(LET US GIVE THANKS TO THE ALMIGHTY
WHO GRACED US WITH BOUNTIFUL NATURE)
