I am glad that this less recognized vernacular in the Philippines is now getting popularity across the country. Thanks to the efforts of our fellow Antikenyo who struggled so much to open the door for our language “karay-a” to be appreciated throughout the Philippines and even to the world. I would like to thanks our antikenyo song writers for their efforts to promote not only the magnificence of our province “Antique“ but also for spreading our own karay-a dialect thru kinaray-a songs which is now getting popularity in western visayas provinces and parts of Mindanao. Also, it is a must to acknowledge the work of our fellow antikenyo writers for spreading this facts. Alex delos Santos who authored a book “ The Rise of Kinaray-a” is one of antikenyo pioneers in promoting our tongue language. It is a great masterpiece that gives us an overview about the etymology of “karay-a” dialect and how it differs from ilonggo and other major languages in the Philippines. Today, the rise of antikenyo songwriters paved the way in the compaign towards promoting our cultures and identity. Noel Alamis’ ” Ang Probinsyana Gwapa“, Dante Beriong’s ” Mauli guid ako sa Antike“, Sammy Rubido’s ” Pangabuhi sa Uma” which are now aired over radio stations in western visayas remind me about the uniqueness of Antikenyo people. I also would like to specially acknowledge Bernie Salcedo “being the father of kinaray-a music” and his famous “Daw sa Kanami lang” by inspiring and leading us in our journey to honor kinaray-a. On the otherhand, Antique themesongs softens my heart and had made me realized how powerful, brillant, and competitive people we are. I support you spiritually in your efforts in promoting Antique as better place to live in and in pushing kiniray-a language to be a must language to learn. More power and Kruhhhaaaaayyy!Other antikenyos who contribute in kinaray-a :
Bernie Salcedo, Mark Quintela, Randy Tacogdoy, John Iremil Teodoro.
