‘Wakasan’ by Agsunta is one of the outstanding song numbers of #HimigHandog2018. And we heard the OPM band sing it live on ASAP just this Sunday
ABS-CBN paves way once again for dreams to come true in the Himig Handog 2018 songwriting competition. And as we’ve mentioned, one of the remarkable song numbers in this year’s season is ‘Wakasan’ by Agsunta.
And if you want to see them perform it, we have the full performance for you to enjoy right here!
You have probably heard of Agsunta––an alternative and indie band who does impressive song covers and collaborations. They are the chosen interpreters of this Himig Handog entry.
Philip Jarilla, on the other hand, is the songwriter of the said song. He’s one of the talented people who made it to the top 10 of Himig Handog 2018 through his original composition. And if you think you’ve heard of him before, that’s probably because this composer from Antipolo is also known for writing ‘Kariton’ that was interpreted by Acapellago.

Sakali mang hindi pa pagkakataon
Baka bukas na ang tamang panahon
Maghihintay ako hanggang sa wakas
