In celebration of Independence Day, newest telco player DITO Telecommunity, launched its major digital platform GALING DITO. A play on the dual meaning of “galing” in our vernacular, which translates to “TALENT” and likewise “FROM,” this movement aims to recognize and celebrate the innate talent of Filipinos by providing a platform for up-and-coming artists, content creators, and music lovers, to rediscover and embrace their Filipino roots and showcase their passion and creativity. Every time you see artists or content creators displaying world-class TALENT or “galing” online, there’s a big chance it’s FROM our country or “galing dito” – proudly Philippine-made.
Discovering and Empowering Homegrown Talents
More than just a digital platform, GALING DITO is a movement that emboldens Filipino talents who might otherwise go unnoticed to take the center stage, and enables them to be a part of a digital community with a shared desire to get in touch with their local heritage and rediscover what it means to be truly Filipino.
“GALING DITO will collaborate with and enable these artists and creatives so they can finally showcase what it takes to be proudly Filipino.” said Evelyn Jimenez, DITO’s Chief Commercial Officer.
“The movement is a form of bayanihan with Filipinos supporting fellow talents while also celebrating and empowering one another. DITO believes that as individuals, Filipinos are already superbly talented. But as one telecommunity, Filipinos can be better together.” added Jimenez.
To kick off the GALING DITO movement, DITO showcased Filipino dancers, singers, rappers, and performers from various provinces all over the country in a proudly Pinoy music video. Featuring an original composition by Arri Veloso and Vinnie Pacleb, and arranged by Thyro Alfaro, DITO’s music video not only displays picturesque landscapes of the different cities and regions in the Philippines, but also proves the potential of Filipino artists.
Among the talents featured in this memorable and thump-stopping video are singer Marga Jayy, rapper February Bank, dance group Femme Manila, the Buganda Drum Beaters, Ilocos-based rapper Fairy Flojo, Cebu-based rapper Cookie$, P-Pop boy group 13C, and many more!
The GALING DITO music video only marks the beginning of what the GALING DITO movement has in store. This movement will also roll-out exciting activities that everyone can look forward to and participate in:
- Nationwide celebration of the Filipino culture’s diversity by giving artists, musicians, and creators all over the country access to a platform wherein they can showcase their attention-worthy talents.
- Opportunities to bring talents from the local scene together in one collaborative community and feature them on DITO’s digital channels.
“Where we are once divided through cliques, tribes, and differences in affinities and beliefs, GALING DITO aims to connect and unite us all together as one telecommunity. Through dance, music, and artistry, furthered by a strong sense of belongingness, this movement shall thrive in the Filipino’s oneness.” said Jasper Evangelista, DITO’s Director of Brand and Marketing.
