Pinoy Super group The Dawn gave a surprise performance at the Cinemalaya awards night last July 24, 2011. They performed the classic hit “Iisang Bangka” which enlivened the audience. More than a dozen half naked men in jeans had a dance number in front of the band. Best Actor awardee Edgar Allan Cruz, in the New Breed Category for “Ligo Na U Lapit Na Me” was the lead dancer in the group. It was his night. The choreography was also reminiscent of the dance themed “Ang Sayaw Ng Dalawang Kaliwang Paa” which won the Best Original Score-Chrsitine Muco and Jena Pamintuan.

The dancers were simulating the rowing of oars which is logical for the song. But it may look like they’re doing something else from still photos. Could Edgar Allan Cruz be the next Coco Martin?

The Dawn has had some history with Cinemalaya, their film “Tulad Ng Dati” by Mike Sandejas in 2006 dealt with their loss of guitarist Teddy Diaz. Some people have also made the observation that vocalist Jett Pangan looks like actor John Lapus. I feel Jett is more handsome while John is prettier. Lapus was seen beside New Breed Best Actress winner Eugene Domingo of “Ang Babae Sa Septic Tank”during the “Ligo Na u Lapit Na me” gala. Both “Ligo na U…” and “…Septic Tank” will have their commercial releases this August as well. Check listings in newspapers for theaters and exact dates.
