As Bacolod’s annual Masskara festival draws near, the province is preparing for its month-long celebration that officially starts on October 1. The Masskara festival is also known as one of the biggest festivals in the country. Last September 13, singer and actor Darren Espanto shared his experience shooting a music video in the City of Smiles along with fellow Star Magic artist Sue Ramirez.
On his Iatest post, Darren wrote,
“Bacolod, it’s time to smile again!
“It’s both a privilege and honor to be chosen to sing the theme song of this year’s Masskara Festival! Thank you po! Had a great time shooting with @sueannadoodles and the whole team! Balik Yuhum, Bacolod!
“Here are a few pics and vids behind the scenes from our shoot pero feeling ko talaga food trip yung ginawa namin ni Sue. Sooo many great places to eat!”
In the behind-the-scenes video clip that Darren posted, he and Sue are seen dancing with colorfully masked dancers which are a trademark of the festival. The two stars also enjoyed visiting seven of Bacolod’s most popular foodie places and tried native delicacies like the chicken inasal, piaya, and cakes.
Darren is currently part of the iWantTFC musical series Lyric and Beat while Sue was part of the cast of the successful primetime series The Broken Marriage Vow which ended its run earlier this year.
