Palm Grass to launch “My Selosa Girl” Music Video to
reconnect Cebu youth to their heritage

To celebrate the National Museums and Galleries Month, Palm Grass, Cebu’s only heritage hotel, will launch the music video of “My Selosa Girl” for young audiences to connect to their Cebuano heritage.

Performed by boy group, DMD (Dungga mi, Dzai), the song and music video launch this October 29, 2019, 2PM at Hawanan Tres de Abril, Palm Grass Hotel is part of Palm Grass’ Heritage Awareness Program.

Using the pop genre, the song aims to connect the young Cebuanos  to their roots, for them to have a strong foundation of their identity, history and heritage as Cebuanos.

The lyricist and producer, Agripina Guivelondo of Palm Grass, worked with young musicians and the new boy group, DMD (Dungga mi, Dzai) who contributed to the final form of the song.

My Selosa Girl music composer RJ Ensalada said that he considers himself as an agent of change. “I created the music like I’m traveling back to the past wondering how these heroes worked for the pride of our land.  This is how I educate millennials, I bring back the past, sharing it with today’s youth.”

DMD Member Angelo Seismundo, Jr. hopes that the song will create an impact on the youth.  “In this generation, most songs released are about love. This song is different as this is also about Cebu history, Cebu streets, and the stories behind them.”

The music video is created by Hong Kong-based video production boutique Visualize That Event/Asia Pacific Focus Features’ communications specialist and content creator Prospero Laput.

The music video launch is part of the event, “Ani sa Diyandi” (October Harvest of Arts at Palm Grass).

In this event, Celso Pepito’s painting on precolonial Cebu trade, “Pagbinayloay” will be unveiled and a short video on him by Prospero Laput will also be screened.

Museo Sugbo Curator Ms. Cecilia Cabañes in a free admission forum will talk on “A Fun Afternoon at the Museum: Why is it fun and important to visit a museum?”

Invited to the event are Cebu heritage advocates, the arts and music community, students and youth from Cebu universities, the barangays along Gen. Junquera Street namely: Kamagayan, Sta. Cruz, Cogon Ramos, San Antonio, and Kalubihan and the rest of the Cebu public.
