Ben&Ben drops new music video 'Magpahinga' starring Joel Torre and Bela Padilla`

05/23/2021 09:15:35 PM

Ben&Ben has dropped the music video for its newest song “Magpahinga.”

The nine-piece collective took the month of May by storm with two new singles – Upuan and Magpahinga – introducing its new phase of their music to their fans in the grandest way possible. 

On Sunday (23 May 2021), Ben&Ben has released the music video for Magpahinga on YouTube. 

Touching on delicate matters such as death, grief, and the final moments spent with a loved one, the visual narrative carries the weight of losing someone special in the most uncertain of times and puts its arms around you with a reassuring message that everything will be alright. 
“The video explores the relationship between a father and a daughter, and the emotional burden that comes with having to say goodbye,” said guitarist and lead vocalist Paolo Benjamin. “It isn't easy to come to terms with mortality, but it also brings out the most tender moments and cathartic resolutions.”
Multi-award veteran actor Joel Torre and acclaimed actress Bela Padilla star in this music video as a father-daughter tandem spending their last moments together. A known collaborator for visual accompaniment is director Jorel Lising.

Guitarist and lead vocalist Miguel Benjamin pointed out that by “observing two very different but distinct generations of artists,” the band had a great time learning about the award-winning actors’ process and technique. “We loved seeing them get deep into character and really owning their roles wholeheartedly. There was clear respect for the craft, and the message we all wanted to convey was there.” 
Keyboardist Patricia Lasaten echoed Miguel’s observations and praised the astounding craftmanship and chemistry between the two leads. “There was a moment in the filming of the video where you could really feel the thickness of heightened tensions in the room because of the nature of the scene. That’s how real it was.”
“Since he has been based here at the Ben&Ben House as well, he was with us even during the writing and recording of the song, and thus he deeply understands the context and message of the song as well,” bassist Agnes Reoma said of their music video director.
