The COVID-19 pandemic and the ensuing months long quarantine that followed had made us do all sorts of things that we could and wouldn’t thought we could have done, ranging from a variety of online challenges to just plain dancing like crazy within the comforts of our own rooms.
It had also made us miss dearly our loved ones who before all of this, we just casually met and had hangouts with, the sorts of activities we just took for granted but would now do anything in our power to do it again.
The music video for singer-songwriter Earl Generao’s latest release Sumayaw (Sa Kanya-kanyang Kwarto), released on November 12, 2020 on O/C Records’ YouTube channel, combines these two, feeble attempts to cope with the isolation and pandemic induced weariness into a four minute, collective fun dance off and a show of our shared, virtual insanity brought on by the still continuing pandemic featuring himself some prominent acts within the local music and entertainment industry.
Lead by Earl himself, the music video features some prominent local music and entertainment industry figures busting out some of their carefree dance moves within the comforts of their own bedrooms, which includes in no particular order, fellow singer-songwriters Keiko Necesario, Coeli, Bea Lorenzo, Beloved Abe, and Janine Teñoso, alongside fellow O/C artists Jem Cubil, Zsaris, Aly Remulla, Pappel, and his girlfriend Frizzle Anne, whose part in this video is pretty sweet and significant to say the least.
Adding to the menagerie of quarantined musicians contributing some moves in the video is Bita and the Botflies vocalist Sofy Aldeguer, Halina lead vocalist and composer Divino Dayacap, the siblings Ysa and Ygo from Ysanygo, Leanne Mamonong and Naara Acueza of Leanne & Naara, and pop rock band Rouge members Jeri Vega Oro, Gyan Murriel, and Princess Ybañez.
Joining the collective dance craze is actress and musician Glaiza de Castro, social media personalities Kat Galang and Dora Dorado, Myx VJ Samm, Wish 107.5 DJ Alice, whose acccompanied by her cute nieces, artists Albert Raqueño and Kirsten Salazar, musician Telay Robles, and clebrity couple and O/C Records heads Kean Cipriano and Chynna Ortaleza, appearing with their children Salem and Stellar Cipriano, the latter of whom made a surprise split at the end of the video.
