  It is the first time that such music album is released in the Middle East and the Gulf.

SYNOPSIS OF THE SONGS

AKING MAHAL (My Love), interpreted emotionally by superstar NORA AUNOR, relates a woman’s anxieties over her loved one’s journey to foreign shores.  The painful longing, but full of promises for a better future, is evoked deeply in the song.  A mellow soft tune.

I DO is a sweet song by a loyal girlfriend, rendered by CLAUDINE BARRETO.  The song speaks of an overwhelming gaiety of a young heart whose patience so unparalleled in waiting for her lover finally pays off.  This is the only English song in the album.

We feel the extreme desire of a melancholy heart for a loved one in MAKAPAGHANAPBUHAY LANG (Just To Have A Job) by NONOY ZUNIGA.  The interpreter appreciated the piece so much, claiming the song was really well-thought of, a product of both wit and emotion.  This is a pop-song with a shade of blues.

The family takes centerpoint as a moral booster in the song KABAYAN HUWAG MAG-ALALA (My Countryman Don’t Worry) by JUAN RODRIGO.  The nostalgic feeling, quite universal in nature, is deeply etched in the song.  This song has a sweet jazzy tune.

MIRIAM PANTIG gives her OFW emotion in the ballad song MAAYOS NA BUHAY (A Better Life) which rages over unspoken sufferings and sacrifices.  Amidst a hurting milieu, the realization of a dream is the only thing that holds dear to someone to continue living a drab life.

Over time takes ambivalent meanings in the song O.T. giddily interpreted by ALDOE RUBEE.  Here, the Filipino sense of humor surfaces in times of trials.  This song has a rock and roll beat.

Acculturation embraces a pedantic touch in the song RAMADAN, brought to life by RICHARD VILLANUEVA.  The uninformed OFW is given caution to keep up with a Muslim tradition and discipline, and to respect them.  A little fast tempo with combination of rap.

One feels the echoes of a ghastly wind and the rage of turbulent sea in the song DOON (There) by CINDY ROSAS.  The swing dance rhythm of the song seems to sway with the rippling waters on the shore.  A song for the seamen.

JO AWAYAN and MIRIAM PANTIG blend beautifully in PARA SA INYO, OFW NG BUONG MUNDO (For All Of You, OFW Of The World), the theme song of the album, a tribute to all the OFWs worldwide whose tool for survival are brains, talents and physical power.  With upbeat tempo, a “come on” song for OFWs.

KELLY GRACE SALCEDO and NONOY ZUNIGA move with passion and pride in demonstrating to all and sundry the greatness of OFWs in the song DAKILA KA (You Are Great), which these Filipino modern day heroes truly exemplify.
