12 days of Christmas carols for Filipinos abroad
DALY CITY, California — Filipinos all over the world will get the first-ever digital Christmas caroling experience, Namamasko Po! The Kapamilya Christmas Carols.
“I came to realize that in countries like the U.S., you get more trick-or-treaters than you get Christmas carolers,” said head of global events Ricky Resurreccion, who has lived away from the Philippines for many years.
Namamasko Po!, an online live event that brings the viewer 12 days of happy, hopeful, and comforting sounds of a true “Paskong Pinoy” (Filipino Christmas) is brought by TFC and Remitly.
Various Kapamilya artists like Erik Santos, Jed Madela, Jona, Jason Dy, Klarisse, Nyoy Volante, Yeng Constantino, and more will brighten the holidays for Filipinos in the U.S., Canada, the U.K., Australia, and the Philippines.
Remitly Senior Marketing Manager Katrina Tioseco shares that many Remitly customers who moved away from the Philippines miss the Filipino Christmas, which they claim is different from others.
Starting December 1, “Namamasko Po!” will feature a Kapamilya artist each day for 12 days to sing and greet viewers live, with pre-selected Christmas songs.
From Manila, the broadcast will be available to viewers on TFC Online in the US, Canada, UK and Australia at their respective time zones and on Facebook Live on the Kapamilya TFC Facebook account
TFC and Remitly are excited to have the project spread Pinoy holiday cheer. Resurreccion points out that technology can really be an enabler, especially this season.
Namamasko Po! is free. “Namamasko Po! The Kapamilya Christmas Carols” can be seen from December 1-12 on TFC.tv/NamamaskoPo and on Facebook.com/KapamilyaTFC. All subscriber levels of TFC.tv will have access the live broadcast as well.
