A Story Behind A Song



When I traveled 1987 on Luzon in the mountains I met this Finnish guy in the bus from Sagada to Bontoc. During our conversations, I asked him why he wanted to visit the Philippines. He didn’t say because of beaches or rice terraces, but had a quite different story.

In Finland he had heard that song from Z.A. “ANAK” in the radio. And he found out from which country it is. So he said to himself: ” Where they make beautiful music like this must be a beautiful country”. That’s why he decided to visit the Philippines and he told me, he was right. - I agreed.

*this is my husband’s story way back years when he first time visited Philippines.I can still remember tears in his eyes as he told me this story, and it touches me because I’m a Filipino. We play this song everytime we miss Home… Philippines

  5. A love story of two completely different strangers bound by a song.

    No wonder! Freddie's "Anak" became a worldwide hit and was released in 56 countries and in more than 26 different foreign languages. It has sold over 30 million copies.
