KAYONG mga kabataan, inyong pangalagaan, itong munting paraiso huwag niyong pabayaan” (Filipino).
“Dakayo nga agtutubo inkayo aywanan, daytoy bassit nga paraiso di yu nga baybay-an” (Ilocano). So goes the song, “Sa Saliw ng mga Gangsa”, theme song of this year’s festival, Ibagiw.
The song’s music and lyrics is by Karlo Marko Altomonte, Creative Director of the Baguio Creative City Festival 2019.
Living up with this song, it is heartwarming to know that the spirit of camaraderie, discipline, artistry, creativity, pride, and inspiration is alive and instilled in our youth.
Surely, fostering unity among the youth of today will make the world a better place. Cheers to our youth, our cultural, environmental warriors and safekeepers! Our innovators for positive change!
