The music video for ALAMAT’s newest summer pop track ‘Day and Night’ was released on the P-pop boy group’s official YouTube channel on Wednesday, June 14.
The feel-good video features Taneo, Mo, Jao, Tomas, R-Ji and Alas dancing and performing the upbeat track in a beach resort, with Jane De Leon’s cameo as “Magindara,” a mermaid in Bicolano/Visayan mythology.
As seen in the credits, the members made sure to wear and use pieces created and curated by Filipino artists, sticking to their promise of combining both traditional and modern Philippine cultural elements into their works.
Their tribal look included sustainable fabrics from DOST – PTRI beaded, embellished & designed by Macky Combe. For their summer look, the group’s stylists combined Ilocos Sur Pinilian polo and bucket hat, patchwork kumot top, inabel blanket from La Union made into a shirt, and weave pattern kumot polo.
Jane De Leon supported ALAMAT’s vision by wearing a tribal mermaid outfit by Lanz Angelo and Tboli brass chokers and bangles from Nawa Philippines in the music video.
In a tweet, the group’s creative director Jason Paul Laxamana shared that the choreography of the song was inspired by Bagobo Tagabawa (People from the South) and Pantomina de Albay (Bikolano Folk Dance), fused with dance hall and Caribbean dances.
