Just 8 days ago, our band Riortrek uploaded our song entitled "Ngiti at Pighati". I am so thrilled to share with you guys how the song was made and everything in between. When we uploaded the song, we got nice feedbacks from our friends as they enjoyed its beat and meaning.

So for today's article, I'm going to share the details on how we came up with this beautiful song.

The original songwriter

Ngiti at Pighati was not originally written by Riortrek. It was written by miss Lyca Mag-aso, Gifter's ex-girlfriend. They were good bandmates before. They have established great connection before in music.

Lyca wrote this song reflecting the hardships and prosperity she went through her life. This song mainly resonates her personal life as goes through the ups and downs of her journey in this world.

Gifter co-wrote this song added some riffs and beat to showcase creativity and storytelling. They even had a recorded version of this one, Lyca herself as the vocals.

Lyrics of the song

Verse 1

Minsan ang buhay, ay may kabiguan

Di mo alam maghihirap ka na naman

Pero kahit anong unos ang daraan

Laging isipin na kaya mo yan

Chorus:

Ang buhay ay laro, minsan panalo minsan bigo

Di mo alam kung san patungo

Ang buhay ang laro, minsan panalo minsan bigo

Minsan may ngiti, minsan ay may pighati.

Verse 2

Minsan ang buhay, ay may kasiyahan

Biyaya'y darating kahit hindi mo asahan

Sa konting dasal at wagas na panalangin

Matutupad din ano man ang hilingin.

Back to chorus

(La la la la la)

Bridge:

Ika'y liligaya, ika'y sasaya

Ako'y naririto para pawiin ang luha

Di magtagagal, buhay ay sasagana

Sayong pagwawagi, nakahanda ka na ba?

(Back to chorus)

Song Interpretation

Ngiti at Pighati is a Tagalog motivational song about thriving in life. It tells you how playful and how disappointing life is because you will go through happiness and sadness.

On top of it, whatever circumstances we go through, we should always remind ourselves that we can overcome it. We just have to believe in ourselves that we can do it. Faith is such a huge factor towards success with the help of hard work and prayer.

My experience while performing

When I first heard the song, Gifter introduced it to me when we were still practicing the lineups of our songs almost everyday. Indeed, I was hooked by its groove and beat. The meaning of the song was powerful and uplifting.

I am pleased to perform it and will be if I sing it in front of the crowd someday. I'm looking forward to that.

Performing in the studio, it wasn't much of a concern to me because we already have an experience shooting there with our first two songs Panagway and About That Chic. I enjoyed our time there. I liked the lighting, the captures were so high definition and the videographer was reliable on his craft.
