Noel Cabangon and Ruby Ibarra for #ADecadeofCourage

Check out these performances from Rappler’s 10th anniversary celebration

MANILA, Philippines — Rappler celebrated its 10th anniversary on Jan. 7 with an online celebration called #ADecadeofCourage.

Between discussions about Rappler’s brand of journalism, reminiscing about our journey over the past 10 years, and stories from past and present Rapplers, we listened to performances from some of our favorite guests from past Live Jams.

In this Live Jam, we share these performances with you.

Noel Cabangon, who has performed several times on Live Jam as a solo artist and with the band Buklod, performs “Bagong Umaga”.

Fil-Am rapper Ruby Ibarra and her band, the Balikbayans, perform “A Thousand Cuts” – the song Ruby wrote and named after Ramona Diaz’s documentary about Maria Ressa and Rappler.

Ruby and the Balikbayans first performed on Live Jam in 2019, in their final hours in the Philippines before returning to the United States. This invitation turned out to be a twist of fate – the first time Ruby met and connected with Maria and Ramona.
