ABUCAY, Bataan – Celebrating its 5th year, KANTArriba season has come again – ready to make us kilig, give us tears, and leave us in awe. In order to give the complete KANTArriba experience, the music videos for each song entry was launched yesterday, September 28, 2017, at Colegio de San Juan de Letran – Bataan’s audio-visual room.
Way back 2013, when KANTArriba was mainly a requirement for a subject of Communication Arts students, the entries were just 3 songs. But today, as it opened the doors for all college and high school students and even faculty members in the Colegio and as it continuously honed individuals to produce a greater art of their own, the song entries quintupled in number because 14 song entries compete in this year’s KANTArriba.
