A happy and amusing ode to Pinoys’ resilience
Asia’s premiere vocal harmony act The CompanY sings about the joy gardening brings to many Filipinos in the retro-disco tune “Disco Plantito, Disco Plantita.”
“People are doing their very best to just survive mentally, emotionally, psychologically in this pandemic so we thought of coming up with a song that is happy, celebratory, and joyful, and also speaks of the resilience of the human spirit, especially tayong mga Pinoy,” said member Moy Ortiz via a MYXclusive interview.
As the title suggests, the happy tune speaks of how Filipinos are able to find bliss and maintain sanity through one of their favorite pastimes today, gardening.
“Ultimately ‘Disco Plantito, Disco Plantita’ is a song of hope despite what you’re going through, despite the challenges of living every day in the pandemic,” added Moy, who wrote the lyrics along with Edith Gallardo.
The song is intended for a brand new musical produced by Pinoy Playlist Music Festival 2021 dubbed “Da Pinoy Pandemic Palabas,” which will premiere on November 6 on YouTube and Facebook.
It is also the lead single off The CompanY’s 29th album, which is currently in the works and will be released under Star Music.
Aside from Moy (tenor2/bass), the singing quartet is composed of multi-hyphenated artists Sweet Plantado (soprano), Annie Quintos (soprano/alto), and OJ Mariano (tenor).
