Kiyo expresses gratitude through new song 'Harana Sa Sarili'

11/13/2021 02:45:59 AM

Prolific rapper Kiyo finds value in celebrating the simple joys of living on new single Harana Sa Sarili, one of the songs from his  highly anticipated debut album

As a song that talks about self-worth, Kiyo expresses gratitude for surviving life’s harshest challenges, and being able to give back to supporters who have been with this Filipino hip-hop artist throughout his music journey.
“Minsan nakakalimutan natin magpasalamat sa sarili natin, nakakalimutan natin yung mga maliliit na bagay na dapat natin ikatuwa (We rarely thank ourselves and the small things that give us joy),” the Navotas City-born artist said in a statement. “Masaya lang ako na nandito pa ako. Kaya nasulat ko yung kanta na yan (I’m just happy and contented to be here. This spark of life inspired me to write the song).”
Exploring smooth, lo-fi sounds with colorful production, Kiyo thrives in the realm of optimism and earnestness, revealing bits and pieces of his personal life to rousing effect. On “Harana Sa Sarili,” he rises above the clutter with endearingly laid-back energy and sunny disposition, and spits verses that are uniquely in touch with himself.
“Masyado tong bouncy kesa sa mga naunang mas chill ko na tracks (Compared to my previous ‘chill’ tracks, this one has a lot more bounce to it),” Kiyo described his latest song. “Uplifting yung mood niya pero yung lyrics kabaliktaran (The mood is uplifting, but the words say otherwise).” 
“Harana Sa Sarili” will be part of Kiyo’s highly anticipated debut album, Haranasa: Sa’yo at Sa Akin—a 15-track album that freatures collaborations with some of his trusted pals in the industry like YZKK, Shortone, and Space Moses—that is slated to release on 26 November 2021 under Dyecast Ent. To celebrate the launching, a free digital concert will take place on the same day. 

According to the acclaimed rapper and producer, the new album is confident in its unraveling of his own humanity and sense of time, and the many layers and intricacies that define him. Haranasa: Sa’yo at Sa Akin also functions as an ode to love in its many forms, including but not limited to love for people, friends, family, partner, and self.
