Look at the Filipino Pride giant solar artwork as it lights up the SM MOA globe and watch the Kinsentenyal song performed by 6cyclemind for Philippine Independence Day.
The solar art and song were unveiled by Filipino-born global grassroots solar lighting movement Liter of Light on June 12, 2021, to join the celebration of the 123rd Philippine Independence Day while encouraging the nation to be proud of its heritage.
The giant display written using solar lights hand-built for the organization through its “Light It Forward” campaign, reads “Proud to be Filipino. 123 Years. Araw Ng Kalayaan.”
“Today, we celebrate Philippine pride with one of the largest solar artworks built by the power of bayanihan,” says Illac Diaz, Founder and Executive Director of Liter of Light. “For the past year, we have invited all of you to help us to bring light and hope to communities through building simple solar lights from home. On this year’s Araw Ng Kalayaan, we recognize your spirit and pride in continuing to show care and compassion, even in the midst of a global health pandemic.”
The solar tribute was built in partnership with the SM Mall of Asia, Philippine Italian Association, Rotary Club of Makati Business District, D3830 – Philippines, WALK the TALK with MACHE, airasia travels, Kyäni Inc., First Gen Corporation, Pasay City Police Station Force Multipliers – Barangay Peace Keeping Action Team (BPATs) and SALAAM Force Multiplier, Pasay City Police Station and Substation 10 with the special participation of Rotary Club of Big Bike Riders, Royal Einfeld North, Outlaws MC Philippines, Tondo Klasiko, VRM Philippines and Rook Helmets.
The artwork is the latest in a series that Liter of Light has built with location partner, SM Mall of Asia.
The Kinsentenyal song featuring Tutti Caringal & Herbert Hernandez of 6cyclemind was written and arranged by Raymund Marasigan.
Liter of Light states that the solar artwork and song were released to raise awareness about its efforts to combat energy poverty and empower the 13 million Filipinos currently living without light.
