Pop band 1:43, mentions "Sirena" as they mention to Kevin Balot, a transgender Filipina.

Composition[edit]

"I think this is the first time that a song about a gay man is presented in a first person's point of view, I worked very hard on this song for it not to be offending to anyone." -Gloc-9[1]

The song is about the life of a gay person ("bakla"), from his childhood to his teenage years until the deathbed of his father.[2]

Music video[edit]

The video for "Sirena" was directed by J. Pacena II (who also directed Gloc-9's "Lando", "Balita", "Upuan" among others). The video also features prominent gay personalities like members of the Ladlad Party List such as Danton Remoto and Boy Abunda. The uploaded music video of this song on YouTube reached 2 million views in less than a month.[3]
