For every journey, there is always a beginning.
For Kuerdas Band, it all began with a song.
Hiling ng Bayan Ko was an original composition which was their entry to a song writing competition.
Kuerdas Band had always been known to be competitive. They started out to compete as neophytes. They joined song writing competitions and band competitions. It was never new to them.
And so was losing. They lost out in the Kadsangal Songwriting Competition 11 years ago. They emerged only fourth place. But it was only the beginning for them.
Kuerdas Band was formed from then on and the rest is history.
