Madayaw Davao, Madayaw Coca-Cola!

by , in
When it comes to festivals and merrymaking, Davao never falls far from the list of places to go to. The annual Kadayawan festival has been a phenomenon in itself, drawing crowds of people who want to see and experience how to party – the Davaoeno way.

If you stroll the main streets of the city and even wander as far as the immediate town outskirts and you will feel the boundless energy of everyone you meet. The people here are known for the warm hospitality, engaging smiles and the ongoing love affair with food. The ultimate foodie, Davaoenos have always been known to serve food regardless the occasion – birthdays, valentines, the holidays, job promotions, graduations….even the ‘just because’ days – because as you know the family is together a reason enough to celebrate. And where food and family is, Coca Cola can’t be far behind which we truly love from the start.

And as Davaoeno’s, we share the same values as Coca Cola – happiness, pure, simple and unadulterated. This sentiment is aptly covered in Buildex Pagales’ song, ‘Madayaw Davao’…’Lahi ra gyud kung magka uban uban. (Nothing beats togetherness.) See video below and lyrics after the jump (provided in English and Bisaya translation)



Incidentally, the famous Kadayawan festival of Davao takes its roots from the word dayaw which means that which is good, valuable, superior and beautiful. Nothing could be closer to the truth because Davao is known for its good and noble locals, impeccable and valuable principles, superior culture and way of living as well as the natural beauty of the land and the people themselves. That’s why our family has never moved to a new place because we really love it here and we always look forward the celebration of the King of Festival – Kadayawan.  

But don’t just read about the festival. Hop into a plane and mingle and join the revelry. The Davaoeno way always have a glass of ice cold Coca Colas with the local delicacy – the Durian or pair it up with their wide array of delicacies. This is just my favorite!

Now there’s something you don’t see everyday! Just like the song that was composed for the festival - ‘Madayaw Davao! ….Where my pride will always lie, where my love will never die.’ Singer Buildex’ words ring out with truth and sincerity.

So what are you waiting for? Visit Davao in time for the Kadayawan festival and see firsthand the how the locals party. Party hard the Davaoeno way – it’s that simple. Engage in the festivity and try the following activities:

Aug20, 8pm onwards – Buildex Pagales Live concert together with Evee (local Davaoeno  band)

Aug21, 7am to 3pm – Float Parade, Come and see heartthrobs Buildex and Enchong Dee live and in the flesh!

Aug21, 6pm onwards – Join the back to back concert with guest bands Callalily, 6Cyclemind and Freestyle

Get the taste of true Davao happiness. The happiness in this land, much like happiness what Coca Cola brings is superior and incomparable. Madayaw, Davao! 


Madayaw Davao! Madayaw Coca-Cola! Lyrics (Bisaya)
Artist: Buildex Pagales

Lain laing luna ang atong gigikanan
Ang atong panag' uban wala’y kaparehas
Mao nga dali na, itodo na nato
Isinggit na, ang gugma sa atong dakbayan

CHORUS
Madayaw Davao! Dinhi kusog ang pagkamadagipon
Madayaw Davao! Dinhi malipayon ang kinabuhi
Dinhi ang akong gugma, dili mahanaw
Dinhi ang akong garbo, wala’y katapusan

Mao nga pagmata na! Ipakita sa kalibutan
Kini ang tinood! Ang atong garbo!
Mao nga dali na! Itodo ng kalipay
Awiton ta ang gugma sa akong dakbayan!

Madayaw Davao! Gusto namo ang labaw sa tanan
Madayaw Davao! Lahi ra gyud kung magka uban uban
Dinhi ang akong gugma, dili mahanaw
Dinhi ang akong garbo, wala’y katapusan

Dili ko garboso, gusto lang nako isangyaw
Lain lain man ang atong mga panglantaw
Usa lang ang makahatag pahiyom
Biisan asa man makaabot nga dapit
Kini gihapon ang gina binabalik-balikan

CHORUS x2

Madayaw Davao, Madayaw Davao!
Madayaw Davao, Madayaw Davao!

Madayaw Davao! Madayaw Coca-Cola! Lyrics (English)
Artist: Buildex Pagales

We are all different. From different places.
But we have a bond, so deep and strong
So come together, and take it higher
Let’s shout about it, this home we love

CHORUS
Madayaw Davao! Where the loyalty is fierce
Madayaw Davao! Happiness lives here
Where my pride will always lie
Where my love will never die

So time to rise up and show the whole world
This is “the real thing,” this pride we share
So here it comes now, dial up the fun
Let’s sing about it, this home we love

Madayaw Davao! Where we only want the best
Madayaw Davao! Nothing beats togetherness
Where my pride will always lie
Where my love will never die

I don’t want to boast, just wanna say
We may have different points of view
But the same one thing makes us smile
We may end up in different places
But we’ll keep coming back to the same one place

CHORUS x2
Madayaw Davao, Madayaw Davao!
Madayaw Davao, Madayaw Davao!
