Warning: this can be your next LSS.
The National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) wanted to let more Filipinos know and appreciate the growth being enjoyed by the Philippines in a way that even teens and millennials would easily see.
To reach out to a wider audience, the overly-technical NEDA turned to performer Thyro to sing a song about the country’s progress, which was their way of making the growth story relatable and even ingrained in people’s minds.
The song was aptly titled “Tunog ng Progreso,” which makes the case of a continued upward growth path experienced by the Philippines. It was arranged and composed by Allan Feliciano and Top Suzara.
The composers used the data plots of the country’s economic history to create a scale, which is explained in this video.
Don’t get worried if you catch a bad case of last song syndrome as it’s very catchy. Sing away!
