The National Quincentennial Committee (NQC) and PHLPOP released last April 23 the new music video of “Bagani,” the theme song of the 2021 Quincentennial Commemorations in the Philippines (2021 QCP). It features 50 OPM artists from across generations. These include Dulce, Noel Cabangon, Bayang Barios, Juris, Nyoy Volante, Catriona Gray, and Leanne & Naara among others. Several younger OPM artists from the Visayas and Mindanao joined the project.
The release of the song was in time for the 500th anniversary of the Victory at Mactan, the DDay of the 2021 QCP, on 27 April 2021. In the said event, Lapulapu and the warriors of Mactan defeated the Spaniards and killed Ferdinand Magellan.
The song was written and composed by Roel Rostata, arranged by Jungee Marcelo, with Cebuano translations by Jude Gitamondoc. It exudes the gallantry and nobleness in Filipino, characters they inherited from centuries of struggles and challenges since the time of Lapulapu in the Battle of Mactan on 27 April 2021.
